Press release

In the joint project WindGISKI, an AI-based geoinformation system for the designation of potential areas for wind turbines is being developed and evaluated. This geoinformation system is intended to systematize and automate the identification and evaluation process of potential areas for onshore wind energy. This should improve the number and quality of potential areas identified in the future.

In the future, the existing potential areas for wind turbines – both greenfield and repowering potentials – can be exploited more extensively and efficiently. The total installed capacity of wind turbines in Germany can be significantly increased.

The Institute of Structural Analysis (ISD) at Leibniz University Hannover is coordinating the joint project. In addition, seven other consortium partners are participating in the research project.

In the run-up to the research project, the consortium partners IPH gGmbH and Nefino GmbH have already carried out a corresponding pilot project.

Sponsor

The project no. 67KI21003B is funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety based on a decision of the Parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany. The project executing organization is Zukunft – Umwelt – Gesellschaft (ZUG) gGmbH.
