Environment group Nabu opposes expansion of wind energy in forests
The environment group Nabu plans to advocate for “stricter limits” on the construction of wind turbines in Germany’s forests, writes Daniel Wetzel in Welt Online. Despite being “generally in favour of the energy transition and wind power expansion”, a position paper from Nabu argues for a number of criteria that should be met before new turbines can be built in German forests, says Wetzel. If the position paper is adopted at Nabu’s general assembly on 11 November, it would put the group at odds with German government plans to increase the share of wind energy capacity in regions with dense forest in the South of the country.
