Research project WindGISKI

Project title: WindGISKI – Development of an AI-based geoinformation system for the selection of wind energy potential areas in the area of conflict between species, environmental and climate protection.



The main objectives of the project are the development and evaluation of an AI-based GIS for the designation of potential areas for wind turbines, which on the one hand systematizes and automates the identification and evaluation process of potential areas and on the other hand improves the number and quality of future designated potential areas. The AI-based GIS should ultimately help to ensure that in the future the existing area potential for WTs (greenfield and repowering potentials) can be exploited more extensively and efficiently, thereby significantly increasing the total installed capacity of WTs in Germany.
