Abstract: By now, there are numerous high-quality studies discussing the incompatibility of the development of renewable energies with the preservation of landscape. However, no further insight is provided as to how a holistic spatial integration of renewable energies may be achieved. Yet the ambitious aim of Germany's government of increasing the percentage of energy (electricity) obtained from renewable energies to 45% by 2025 and to 60% by 2035 will lead to an even greater spatial strain on Germany's rural areas as it has been the case so far. Therefore, this project aims to critically investigate the currently established paradigm of site planning for renewable energies. Based upon the findings, an alternative, holistic concept of site planning will be developed and exemplified.
