Wind Wire: Germany - Repowering advice centre launched

Germany's federal environment ministry has now joined forces with the association of German cities and towns to set up an information exchange on the repowering of wind stations in a bid to guide towns and parishes through complex planning issues and other problems. The new exchange will be based in Hanover and run by Kommunalen Umwelt-Aktion. The creation of a centralised and independent advisory service for municipal repowering issues shows the importance of towns and parishes in future energy policy, says Gerd Landsberg, managing director of the association.
