The acceleration of Germany's energy transition, spurred by various geopolitically significant events, has led to changes in the legal framework governing renewable energies, particularly onshore wind energy. These changes aim to streamline and accelerate the approval process for such technologies, which affects planning, subsidies, procedural, and ultimately permitting law. However, the expansion of renewable energy may result in conflicts particularly with species protection regulations. This article is divided into two main parts. The first part outlines the key legal changes at both German and European levels, specifically pertaining to the streamlined and accelerated development of onshore wind energy. These changes are intricate and especially complex due to the strong interconnections between the new regulations and their concurrent implementation at both European and German federal levels. Consequently, there is a significant need for clarification among the recipients of these new regulations. The authors conclude that it is crucial to collectively understand and address the conflicting goals in the present and future legal changes and work towards collaborative solutions.
