VERBUND is one of the largest producers of electricity from hydropower in Europe. In Germany, we are your strong partner for reliable electricity procurement, direct marketing and energy solutions.
Today, the biggest challenge is the integration of reneweables generated by subsidised and non subsidised plants. We offer flexible generation marketing, storage and pool solutions as well as additional revenues as a result of convincing service concepts.
Maximum planning security and fixed revenues
Since 2016, direct marketing of new generating plants from 100 kilowatts upwards has been mandatory under the German Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). As a trading subsidiary of the largest power company in Austria, VERBUND Energy4Business Germany takes care of the direct marketing of green electricity for plant operators throughout Germany.
