There are specific sectoral strategies, tools and instruments related to identifying and delivering sustainable energy action at national to local levels. The aims of these specific sectoral strategies are often:
In this sub-module, different sectoral strategies, instruments and tools will be described in form of good practice modules. Good practice examples for integrated strategies, instruments and tools are:
Sectoral planning is the systematic preparation and execution of measures within one specific sector of public policy by the competent sectoral authority (federal or state ministry, local sectoral authorities or other bodies governed by public law).
Sectoral planning is deemed to be spatially relevant when it directly or indirectly influences the development of spatial structures.
Apart from cross-sectional, comprehensive planning (urban land-use planning, regional planning, state spatial planning), there is sectoral planning for specialised, long-life, and long-term projects.
Sectoral planning is concerned with linear planning and certain infrastructural facilities.
On the one hand, it deals with linear, cross-community infrastructures, generally at the federal and state levels.
Characteristics of sectoral planning
Disadvantage of sectoral planning: formal multi-level proceedings.
Renewable energies in the sectoral planning system
Task and challenge of spatial planning is to accompany the shaping process of energy policy in order to embed the sectoral objective of a sustainable energy supply in the overall objective of a sustainable spatial planning by managing coordination of upcoming land use conflicts.
Approvals of specific sectoral planned projects, which are closely related to environmental legislation:
1. Consideration conducted decisions
2. Binding authorization decisions
