Since 1999 the Environmental Assessment and Planning Research Group undertakes research on the environmental impacts of public and private planning as well as on management opportunities of decision-making processes by means of existing and new environmental assessment tools on the level of projects, plans, programs and policies.

Environmental assessment tools concern the consideration of media- and cross-sectoral environmental issues in planning processes in urban and rural areas. They serve political decision-making as well as public information and participation in the context of such processes.

For information on the Group's research activities please follow this Link.

Staff of the Environmental Assessment and Planning Research Group is involved in the bachelor course "Ecology and Landscape Planning" and in the masters programs "Environmental Planning" and "Environmental Policy and Planning". You will find the contents of these courses Link.


INNOVATE Guidance Manual for Stakeholder published


In the last phase of the INNOVATE project, researchers worked together in order to develop a guidance, which presents and illustrates the projects research results comprehensively. The guidance, which is available in English and Portuguese, is a contribution to sustainable research by providing starting points for an implementation of research results into practice. Compacted into key messages and explanations along the sections water quantity, water quality, flora, fauna, agriculture, and society, readers like stakeholders or other practitioners can identify topics of their interest easily. Contact details from the researchers make an exchange about questions and suggestions concerning application to other regions possible even beyond the research projects duration. The Portuguese booklets are already on their way to Brazil and will be distributed to stakeholders soon.

Proceedings to the Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts 2015 published


The Environmental Assessment and Planning Research Group hosted the Conference on Wind Energy and Wildlife Impacts in 2015 in Berlin. In cooperation with Springer International Publishing, selected contributions of conference presentations are now published in an anthology which was edited by Prof. Dr. Johann Köppel. "Wind Energy and Wilflife Interactions" comprises recent research on topics such as the assessment of interactions and impacts of birds and bats with wind turbines, insights in understanding and mitigating impacts on wildlife and their habitats, and a review of current research of location and spatial design of wind turbines. On 289 pages, research from Germany, Europe, the USA and other countries is presented. The anthology can be ordered directly at Springer International Publishing as hardcover or eBook edition.

Results of a study project about social acceptance of wind energy published

In the summer semester 2016, the Environmental Assessment and Planning Research Group led a study project on the social acceptance of wind energy. The study project analyzed the acceptance in the regions of Niederer Fläming, Dahme/Mark, Uebigau-Wahrenbrück as well as in the state capital Potsdam. Each region has its own distinct perspective on wind energy. Among other things, it was evaluated whether and how the acceptance of wind energy use in the municipalities of Niederer Fläming and Dahme/Mark changed over the last ten years. Furthermore, it was examined whether differences in acceptance between rural and urban areas in Brandenburg can be identified. The results of the project have now been made accessible to the interested public in the form of a wiki.
