Transport Senator Bettina Jarasch (Greens) wants to focus more on wind power in the future when expanding renewable energies in Berlin. “We can’t – and that’s important to me – just expect us to sit back and have Brandenburg build wind and solar power plants for us. », she said on Tuesday evening in the RBB «Abendschau». Due to the dense population in the capital, the Senate had previously focused primarily on the expansion of solar energy. But that alone is not enough, emphasized Jarasch. “We have to get to all energy sources.”

Roofs could also be considered as potential areas for wind turbines. That is a possibility that needs to be explored. So far, districts have not wanted to approve such smaller systems, “but I also want to talk about that,” said Jarasch. In principle, possible areas could be selected according to certain criteria: “Of course, we build wind turbines best where the area is already sealed,” said the senator.

Further criteria were the distance to residential buildings and the protection of species and nature. “These are criteria and I want to use them as openly as possible and see where there is potential in Berlin and in the city as a whole.” For example, commercial and industrial areas could also be considered.

Jarasch campaigned for the acceptance of the population. “I really hope for support,” she said. It is also possible to talk about shares of affected citizens in the wind turbines. “We have to go back to everything and of course we first take the locations that are compatible.”
