There are two types of environmental impact reports; a Project EIA and a Plan EIA. The Plan EIA is more strategic in nature and is written for spatial visions and zoning or integration plans. The question that is central to sustainable energy for a Plan EIA is: why this location? Often a Plan EIA also contains a comparison of different locations or, for example, different energy sources to achieve a certain objective. The nature of the information is relatively abstract, more qualitative and based on rules of thumb. In some cases, a more detailed study can also be done in a Plan EIA, for example to compare environmental effects in the field of noise. In that case, calculations are performed. A Project EIA is written for a permit application. The focus of this is on how the exact location is organised
