Service Description

Priority areas for wind turbines have been defined for the use of wind energy.

The Schleswig-Holstein State Planning Authority has drawn up new spatial planning plans on the subject of wind energy. This will realign wind energy land planning and ensure an orderly development of wind energy use in the country. The use of wind energy is concentrated in priority areas identified in the regional plans for wind energy. Outside the priority areas, however, the use of wind energy is excluded.

The public and the so-called public interest bodies (TÖB) have participated in a total of 4 participation procedures via the online portal BOB. SH commented on the respective draft plans.

On 29 December 2020, the state government finally adopted the regional plans for wind energy. The plans designate 344 priority areas for wind energy with around 32,000 hectares, which corresponds to around two percent of the country's area. The regional plans entered into force on 31.12.2020.
