The aim of this study about wind power planning in forest was to examine the factors and restrictions, which represent technical limitations, biodiversity, tourism and amount of energy for wind farms in Kronoberg County. Suitable areas for wind power were identified from the collected information about planning principles and potential conflicts. From the suitable areas the potential energy gain is calculated. Methods used were mainly a literature review, interviews with experts and practitioners, GIS analysis and a rough calculation of the energy gain. The section of information and facts describes in general wind power planning and possible conflicts. A summary is also provided about various interests in Kronoberg County, where conflicts with wind power can occur. Four conflict maps and an overall suitability map were produced using GIS to illustrate the study area with an outline of conflicts and identified suitable areas for wind farms. An approximate estimation of the intended effect was calculated to 584 MW and 414.4 MW from average effects of wind power plants for Sweden and for Kronoberg County respectively, which was lower than the planned effect of the municipal wind power planning in the County.
