The igr was happy about an exchange with Jaqueline Rauschkolb, member of the state parliament.The occasion for the visit was to get an idea of the current status and igr's experiences with permit procedures for the expansion of renewable energies in Rheinland-Palatinate.

Since the igr supports many project planners for open space photovoltaic systems and wind energy in the approval procedures (space planning and target deviation procedures, building plan procedures, environmental assessments) for the systems themselves as well as for the power lines, it was possible to draw attention to the existing difficulties and also to the potential for optimisation, also on the part of politics.

Mrs. Rauschkolb thankfully took up some ideas for speeding up permit procedures and would like to place them in the state parliament or in the ministries in order to drive the urgently needed expansion of renewable energies.
