Digitized Spatial Planning for Germany

May 31, 2024
For project developers, adhering to regional plans is a challenge because there are 120 planning regions across Germany. The categorization of spatially relevant areas differs among regions. For example, the Regional Plan Halle designates priority areas for wine and fruit cultivation. In the Regional Plan West Mecklenburg, action areas for the red kite receive special consideration. Furthermore, the importance of designated areas for the feasibility of solar ground-mounted systems varies. According to the Regional Plan Leipzig-West Saxony, systems are not permitted in "regionally significant cold air formation areas." Apart from the Regional Association of Saarbrücken, no other planning region reaches this conclusion. Numerous environmental reports have found no or only minimal impairment of the climatic function of solar systems.

Geodata on disadvantaged areas

May 23, 2024
Disadvantages are not always negative. For example, solar parks are promoted on agriculturally disadvantaged land. But how do you find these areas given the various valid definitions and heterogeneous data sets?Since last week, the regulation "Solarpaket I" came into force. With the amendment of § 37c in the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), agriculturally disadvantaged areas are now generally eligible for the subsidization of ground-mounted PV plants, provided they are not located in an environmentally protected area. The federal states have an opt-out option if more than 1% (before 2031) or 1.5% (after 2031) of their agricultural land is used for PV installations.

Regional cost differences in the millions due to German "Baukostenzuschuss"

May 7, 2024
What parallels exist between the work of project developers and the German fragmentation of the 17th century? For those interested in old maps, it's known that Germany was comprised of more than 300 kingdoms at that time. Although electricity didn't exist back then, today's power grid is similarly divided, as indicated by the "Marktstammdatenregister", which lists 892 different grid operators. Unfortunately, this isn't ideal for developers of (renewable) energy projects. They must navigate through various processes for grid connection applications. For storage projects, this division is even crucial for site selection.

Utilize instead of curtail!

May 7, 2024
In 2023, approximately 8 TWh of electricity in Germany was curtailed due to grid bottlenecks as part of redispatch measures. This is roughly equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of Berlin. The "Nutzen statt Abregeln" regulation aims to counteract this wasted potential starting from October 1st, 2024.
