Power Generation in Group-owned Wind Farms

The expansion of the portfolio of owner-operated wind farms brings independence

This segment comprises the generation of power in Group-owned wind farms. Expanding the portfolio of Group-owned wind farms is the main pillar of the Company’s organic growth. The operation of Group-owned wind farms and solar parks further allows Energiekontor to cover the running costs of the Company, e.g. if the realisation of projects is delayed; it also makes the Company less dependent on political framework conditions, such as interest rates and raw material prices. The turbine portfolio additionally creates hidden reserves. If required, these turbines could be sold, thus releasing the respective tied-up financial resources plus the associated hidden reserves.

Additional potential lies in the possibility of upgrading Group-owned wind farms, for example through repowering or efficiency-enhancing measures such as rotor blade extension which is allocated to the Operation Development, Innovation and Others segment.

The first addition to the Energiekontor Group's wind farm portfolio was made in 2002. Since then, the portfolio has seen regular expansion. This currently refers primarily to projects that the Group has developed itself. We intend to transfer around half of the projects developed during a year to Group ownership. In the past, the Group also bought financially promising operational wind farms. Such wind farms may either be projects that Energiekontor developed itself and sold at an earlier point in time or projects developed and operated by other companies.

The total rated power of the wind farms operated by Energiekontor in Germany, the UK and Portugal amounted to 259.2 MW at the end of the 2017 financial year.
