Areas with wind-power potential

The wind power plan defines both the principal federal government interests which must be taken into account when planning wind turbine systems and the main areas with wind power potential which must be investigated as part of Cantonal structural planning. The Swiss federal government has identified the main areas with wind power potential, taking into account the principal interests of the federal government and ensuring sufficient spatial concentration. The rough analysis, which is subject to some uncertainty, does not take account of any cantonal or communal interests and does not allow any assertions to be made about the specific feasibility of wind energy plants. Geodata from the main areas with potential are not officially binding, but should be seen primarily as the federal government’s basis for cantons which do not yet have any structural plans in place for wind energy, or which want to adapt their structural plans accordingly. In the interests of completeness, the map must be consulted in parallel with the content of the wind energy plan and the corresponding explanatory report.
