Encouraging Germany’s energy transition

EDF Renewables in Germany develops, constructs and operates projects in the areas of onshore and offshore wind energy as well as photovoltaics for its own portfolio. We offer innovative and customised battery storage solutions for industrial customers as well as for optimising our own assets. We are also active in the sector of green power generation for hydrogen projects.

We follow two strategies to grow our portfolio: first, by developing our own wind energy and photovoltaic projects from scratch, and second, through partnerships as well as acquisitions.

EDF Renewables Deutschland is part of the international EDF Renewables Group – a leading renewable energy producer operating in more than 20 countries. EDF Renewables has been active in Germany for more than 20 years and has since realised over 700 MW of green power projects.

Wind Energy

With regard to onshore wind energy, EDF Renewables is one of the pioneers in Germany and has been engaged in this industry for over 20 years. We are continuously expanding our commitment, drawing on the expertise, experience and resources of the global EDF Renewables group. Our competence lies in the development, construction and optimised operation of new onshore wind farms. In addition, we repower existing plants.

A wind farm portfolio covering 10 German states

In September 2019, EDF Renewables acquired a major portfolio of German wind farm projects from Altus AG. With a total capacity of 300 MW, the sites are spread across 10 federal states and all at varying stages of development.

Altus AG will continue to pursue the local development of these projects working with EDF Renewables right up until the construction period. The development of the wind farms is still in the early stage, but once fully authorised, the projects will be part of the onshore wind power auctions organised by the German Federal Government to secure a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement.

Hydropower

In addition to wind power, EDF Renewables in Germany also contributes to cleaner, more sustainable energy through hydropower. In a 50/50 joint venture with EnBW, we own the Rhine power plant Iffezheim, the largest run-of-river hydropower plant in Germany with an installed capacity of 148 MW.
