List of 3 renewable energy developers in Germany
In addition to companies which have specialized themselves in renewable energy from the beginning on, more and more large energy providers such as RWE are also switching to energy generation through renewable resources. Due to the fact that the renunciation of the climate crisis can only be achieved with the newest technologies and innovative solutions, renewable energy developers are responsible for the sustainable foundation regarding the energy generation. By being in this fundamental position regarding the energy supply chain, they should also receive the appropriate attention on this page.
1. RWE (Essen)
After 120 years of experience in the field of energy generation, the German developer RWE has fundamentally changed its strategy by expanding in the renewable energy sector. Today, as leading provider of renewable energies worldwide, the Essen based company can prohibit the largest part of their core business as green electricity by generating energy through wind farms, solar power and also battery storage. Furthermore, RWE aims the climate neutrality by 2040 by investing five billion euros (net) in renewable energies by 2022 and thereby driving the progress of a sustainable future further forward.
Update 2024: In the US states of Texas and Arizona, three storage units with a capacity of 190 megawatts have been completed by RWE in February 2024. The new units are directly connected to solar installations. In Germany, there are already several locations. For instance, RWE operates a dual battery with a total of 117 MW at the Lingen and Werne power plant sites. Currently, another dual battery with a total capacity of 220 megawatts is under construction at the Neurath and Hamm power plant sites.
2. BayWa (Munich)
As leading developer in Germany and Europe, BayWa focuses on the development of solar farms and wind parks. By realizing renewable energy projects in 28 countries, the German developer can prohibit a total portfolio capacity of more than 3.5 GW and manages besides projects with a capacity of 9 GW. Among these projects are more than 100 wind projects and over 625 solar farms but also other renewable energy projects such as hybrid, bioenergy and energy trading. The developer relies on end-to-end solutions by the implementation of projects. BayWa is involved in several modern technologies and is always interested in supporting and implementing future-proof developments. For example, the German project developer is involved in four agrivoltaic pilot projects in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands.
3. Altus (Karlsruhe)
The German developer with headquarter in Karlsruhe is considered as specialist for renewable energy projects. By realizing wind parks with a capacity of over 480 MW and 280 MW of photovoltaic solar farms, Altus relies on their strategic approach by first identifying eligible locations and afterwards implementing the project including all requirements and individual circumstances. By proceeding in this way, the German developer ensures technical and commercial operational management while using the newest technologies.
Developers for Renewable energy in Germany
Due to climate change, renewable energies are also one of the most promising technologies for Germany in the future. The expansion of green power sources is essential, especially with regard to the steadily increasing demand for electricity, for example due to e-cars. The project development of solar, wind and other renewable energies therefore takes a very significant share.
Project developers are often involved in the value chain for a long time – from the selection of a plant site, through the planning and design of projects, and finally to the sale and feeding of the electricity into the grid.
Our list enables landowners, investors and other companies to find suitable partners. In order to compile our list, our team screens renewable energy deals in Europe and Germany, analyzes the involved parties and adds them to our database. Every project developer in our list can also be found in our directory. In case we missed a relevant German renewable energy developer, you can submit a new listing here. In case we made an error on a certain firm – for instance not mentioning an asset – you can always report an error on the respective page. Through crowdsourcing, we consequently improve our list.
