A medium combustion plant is any technical device with a rated thermal input of 1 MW or more and less than 50 MW in which combustible products are oxidised in order to use the heat thus produced, such as combustion plants, engines and gas turbines. All medium combustion installations must be registered with the Environmental Administration, which keeps a public register with information on each installation. The operating conditions and the obligations of the operators of these installations are laid down in the Grand-Ducal Regulation of 24 April 2018 on the limitation of emissions from medium combustion installations.

The quiet urban landscape areas include relatively large, continuous open spaces of at least regional importance with a high recreational function and corresponding development for leisure and recreation. Its importance lies in the balancing function to the noisy and densely populated areas of the agglomeration of Luxembourg. The quiet urban landscape close to the residential area allows, for example, extensive walks with only occasional crossing of areas with higher noise levels.

The relatively quiet urban oases include public green areas and open spaces with a high quality of living space and an appropriate design as compensation areas within walking distance of residential and work locations. Due to their inner-city location, they do not, or do not completely, meet the above-mentioned criteria of a quiet area, e. g. by showing an increased noise level or being significantly lower. However, the urban planning context of the areas has noise-reducing properties, which lead to the fact that the urban oases in their core areas are considerably calmer than their surroundings. These areas make it possible, for example, to take short walks for those seeking peace and quietness in the immediate vicinity of their homes or workplaces.

In 2018, the environmental administration organised a nationwide air quality measurement campaign in collaboration with 36 participating municipalities and myenergy. More specifically, it is a national measurement campaign of NO2 by passive tubes in the context of the national air quality program and the "Klimapakt Loftqualitéit". The campaign aims to raise awareness and inform municipalities and their inhabitants about the air quality in their respective municipalities, motivate municipalities to contribute to improving their air quality, and demonstrate the efforts undertaken by municipalities for future communications.
The present location map shows the distribution of wind turbines authorized by the Minister of the Environment under the legislation on classified establishments. Depending on the data availability, information on the installed power, hub height and diameter of the propeller can be consulted. "Autorisé" is the project of a wind turbine that has been authorized under the legislation on classified establishments, while "existant" is a wind turbine built by the constructor and according to the implementation report. It should be noted that the coordinates of existing wind turbines listed in the authorization files do not always correspond exactly to the coordinates of the actual locations of the wind turbines after construction, and may vary slightly depending on the construction. Where applicable, the coordinates of wind turbines validated by an official surveyor are indicated by an attribute.
