Specialized basic and background information on the topic of “Renewable energies" for teachers.

Information and ideas:
The guideline can also be handed to students for further study.
In the context of wind turbines and power lines, an interesting inquiry task would be for the students to research why the population of birds of prey like harriers or kites is threatened in Germany. You should point out to the students that apart from power lines and wind turbines, hunters and the impacts of intensive agriculture must also be taken into account.
