The paper presents the necessities and preconditions for an integrated energy planning process in Germany. The legal requirements and regional governmental frameworks for such a process were analyzed and implemented in a case study in Bavaria. The recommended public participation process was enhanced through a questionnaire, which included a choice experiment projecting tailor-made visualizations of renewable energy sources in the local landscape. The results of the questionnaire and the choice experiment provided in-depth insight into preferred and accepted locations for wind turbines and ground-mounted photovoltaic systems, and furthermore revealed preferences regarding investment models, likely household savings and the promotion of renewable energy solutions. The paper concludes with recommendations for similar planning processes.
