Wind energy: Robert Habeck supports citizen participation in wind turbines

According to the Federal Minister of Economics, the population should participate financially in the construction of wind turbines – and benefit. The systems would be perceived as “own”.

In order to accelerate the expansion of wind power in Germany, Federal Minister of Economics Robert Habeck (Greens) considers citizen participation in the construction of wind turbines to be useful. These are “a recipe for success,” said Habeck in Fuchstal in Upper Bavaria. The minister visited a so-called community wind farm, where citizens benefit financially from the wind farm’s proceeds.

Wind turbines are of course a change to the landscape and also to home spaces, said Habeck. “But if the wind turbines are perceived by the population as their own and are actually implemented financially,” then that is something completely different. “It makes a big difference whether it is outside capital that goes somewhere or whether it is your own wind turbines,” said Habeck.
