Regional planning of wind energy projects: asset or handicap for the climate policy? A comparison between Germany and France.

Tuesday 17 March 14:00-19:00

'Pytheas' room (Palais des Arts, Parc Chanot)

By 2020, France aims to provide 23% of its energy consumption through renewable energies, Germany 18%. In both countries, wind energy will make a significant contribution, and the regional planning context will be an major factor influencing the progress of wind farm projects. This side event will introduce the German and French models of regional planning and will evaluate their efficiency with regards to climate policy.

Experts and decision-makers from both countries will discuss the following questions:

  • How important should climate policy be compared to other aims of the regional planning (e.g. nature conservation)?
  • At what point should citizens and project managers be involved in the process?
  • How can the future “schémas régionaux” be reconciled with the “ZDE”?
  • Are national targets being implemented by the "Länder"?
