List of 10 large wind park developers in Europe
The European Union has set itself high goals in terms of climate protection and wants to become climate-neutral by 2050, with emissions already reduced by over 50% in 2030. An important part of this so-called “Green Deal” is the expansion of renewable energies, which leads to the emergence of more and more developers in this field. Solar energy and wind energy are most often the focus of developers. Especially in the north of Europe wind energy is well known and used. Wind plants exist both in the sea (so called offshore plants) but also, and mainly, on land – so called onshore wind plants. This article presents 10 of the most important European developers of wind parks.
1. Abo Wind (Wiesbaden, Germany)
Abo Wind is a German-based solar and wind energy developer. With geographical focus on their home country, Abo Wind has planned and constructed 440 wind plants in Germany, reaching around 1.000 MW energy in Germany alone. The german wind developer has special expertise in wind plants (directly) near or even in forests and also specializes in repowering wind plants. Abo Wind is also very keen to ensure nature conservation and performs replacement plantings in order to keep used forest area the same size.
2. Cloudberry (Oslo, Norway)
Cloudberry is a Nordic owner, developer and operator of renewable energy plants with headquarters in Oslo, Norway as well as Karlstad, Sweden. Their geographical focus is in Norway and Sweden – accordingly Cloudberry is active in the field of hydropower plants and wind farms, mainly onshore. The Nordic wind developer is represented on the stock market under the ticker CLOUD (on Oslo Stock Exchange’s main list).
3. Eolus Vind (Hässleholm, Sweden)
Eolus Vind was established in 1990 – being the first commercial wind energy developer, the company now has evolved to the development and establishment of turnkey facilities/wind farms. Since Eolus Vind has been in the market for over 40 years, the wind energy developer with headquarters in Hässleholm, Sweden, uses the achieved expertise in the pre-study, project development and also in the establishment phase. Their focus market is in the north of Europe (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia) as well as in the United States.
Update 2023: Together with PNE AG (see 9.) Eolus Vind plans an giga-offshore wind park that is planned to be operational in 2030 in Latvia.
4. Iberwind (Algés, Portugal)
Iberwind is a Portugal-based renewable energy developer with their headquarter in Algés. Since 1998 the Portuguese wind energy developer has developed 31 wind farms with a total of >720 MW installed capacity. 2 of these wind farms are on of the largest in Europe with over 100 MW of installed capacity each. Iberwind is focused on onshore wind energy in Portugal and thereby has become one of the most important onshore wind energy developer in the country.
5. OX2 (Stockholm, Sweden)
OX2 is a Stockholm-based renewable energy developer with focus on solar and wind energy. By 2020 has achieved a portfolio of 2.5 GW wind power in Europe. In order to reach their goal of a 100% sustainable planet, the wind farm developer focuses on large-scale energy solution since their founding in 2004. Geographically OX2 focuses on wind parks in Sweden, Finland and Poland.
6. Voltalia (Paris, France)
Voltalia is one of the best-known French renewable energy developer. Under the motto “Improve global environment, Fostering local development” the Paris-based green energy developer acts as an energy producer and service provider in the respective field.

With presence all over Europe, in South America, parts of Africa and Asia, the developer has over 1 GW of installed capacity and over 9 GW in the pipeline.
7. Juwi (Wörrstadt, Germany)
Juwi is a German renewable energy developer active for 25 years. Juwi’s portfolio mainly includes solar and onshore wind energy but also hybrid solutions with storage systems. Worldwide the German developer has planned and constructed over 1.000 onshore wind farms resulting in 2,400 MW of installed capacity. Also, Juwi has high expertise in the reconstruction and restoration as well as the dismantling of wind plants. Moreover, Juwi has successfully planned and constructed wind farms in forests.
8. EDP Renovaveis SA (Madrid, Spain)
EDPR is one of the best-known renewable energy developers and fourth-largest wind energy developer worldwide. With three core business units: Solar, Offshore wind and Onshore wind, the developer has an essential standing in the renewable energy field. Being present in 17 markets, EDPR (short for EDP renewables) has developed over 270 wind farms. Most projects are in Europe, but the developer is also active in the Americas.
9. PNE AG (Cuxhaven, Germany)
PNE – short for pure new energy – is a German renewable energy developer based in Cuxhaven. Being active in the wind energy sector, PNE develops and constructs mainly offshore and onshore wind farms.

Wind park developers from Europe
Wind energy is one of the most important renewable energies worldwide, but also in Europe. Therefore there are many European experts in wind pro
ject development, with their expertise ranging from site analyses, over the design and the final project planning. Working closely with renewable energy investors, the developers have investment backing. Our list contains the most extensive database of European wind energy developers.
Using the list find business partners
While our list is providing an overview of the European market of wind park developers, it is tailored to offer you the opportunity to find the most valuable information in order to identify and get into contact with relevant wind plan developers. The filtering options on our diversified columns enable you to work with the list according to your individual needs and find the best potential business partners.
Renewable energy research and transaction analysis
As research experts we have finding relevant developers down. By screening renewable energy deals in Europe (and worldwide) we identify involved parties and add them to our open-access database. By offering the opportunity to submitting new listings as well as reporting mistakes we made (for example not including the founding year of a company) on the respective site on our directory, we constantly improve our lists by crowdsourcing.
