Since the nuclear catastrophe in Japan in the year 2011, the Federal Government and the federal states have been forcing the extension of the use of renewable energies. This is particularly true for the extension of wind energy. The federal states are reacting very differently to the challenges of the energy turnaround. The controversial planning approach to the challenges of the energy turnaround is the subject of this issue of the journal "Informationen zur Raumentwicklung".
