Bremen-based project developer organises a prize draw to thank landowners for concluding option agreements
Bremen, 26 July 2018. Energiekontor AG wants to thank landowners who have concluded option agreements, thus supporting the company’s vision to cover the entire energy demand with renewable energy sources and to do so the company has organised a prize draw with three different deadlines, i.e. 25 June 2018, 24 September 2018 and 31 December 2018.
A notary was present when the first winner, Ms Silke Kopp-Schreiber from the town of Moringen near Göttingen, was drawn on 2 July 2018. She won a one-night stay at the Hotel Munte in Bremen as well as two tickets for the Klimahaus climate exhibition in Bremerhaven. Furthermore, she has the use of the company’s electric car for the day. A car of the same build will be the prize in the draw that will be held at the end of the year. The handover of the prize took place on 8 July 2018 and was documented on the photo above.
Energiekontor has developed its own app that helps to quickly and easily verify whether a piece of land is suited for a wind farm or solar park. For more information (only in German), please go to here.
Energiekontor aims to be one of the first companies to realise wind farms and solar parks with a levelized cost of electricity below the cost of conventional power plants.
About Energiekontor AG:
For the last 25 years, Energiekontor has stood for a sound approach to business and a wealth of experience in wind power. Formed in Bremerhaven in 1990, the company was one of the pioneers in the industry and is now one of the leading German project developers. Its core business covers the planning, construction and operational management of wind farms in Germany and abroad, and was expanded to include solar power in 2010. Energiekontor also currently owns and operates 34 wind farms and one solar park with total rated power of around 270 megawatts. Now, Energiekontor AG intends to extend its pioneering role to commercial aspects and to realise wind farms and solar parks at market prices without state subsidies in all target markets as quickly as possible.
