Wind Power

Why you should invest in German wind farms

  • The Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) offers a reliable regulatory framework for investments into German wind energy assets, including a 20-year subsidy scheme consisting of a fixed feed-in-tariff for older wind farms or a “market premium” for more recent projects
  • Recent wind project tenders in Germany were all massively undersubscribed resulting in attractive market premiums
  • Germany’s wind sector offers a low risk environment while at the same time providing attractive long-term returns to investors

Project Development

As project developers, we concentrate primarily on smaller wind farms and single turbines. We are always interested in acquiring wind farms approaching the end of their individual feed-in tariff scheme. Our objective is to “repower” these locations with modern wind turbines and sell them off to new investors.

Please contact Guido Fiebes for further inquiries if you need a technical and/or commercial asset manager for your German wind farm of if you are actively looking to acquire wind power projects in Germany.
