Promoting wind power in Europe as a fundamental contribution to climate protection and sustainability – with this goal Alterric enters the market as a powerful, experienced and reliable partner.
New wind energy for a climate-neutral energy future: Since spring 2021, the Aloys Wobben Foundation, the sole shareholder of ENERCON, and EWE AG have been pooling their many years of experience in onshore wind energy in the Alterric joint venture.
Thirty years ago, the wind energy pioneers ENERCON and EWE used their combined strength to implement projects with a lighthouse effect on the industry. One of these was the Pilsum wind farm in 1989. With a total output of three megawatts, it was among the largest energy revolution projects in the world at the time. In the following decades, the Aloys Wobben Foundation and EWE both developed successful companies for the development and operation of wind power on land. In March 2021, both turned these divisions into one cooperating company: Alterric GmbH, headquartered in Aurich in northern Germany.
Sustainable wind expansion
Alterric develops, plans and operates onshore wind farms. With 2,300 megawatts of installed capacity in their operation, Alterric is one of the largest generators of renewable energy in central Europe. The pipeline for new wind projects comprises more than 9,400 megawatts. Alterric believes that climate targets in Europe can only be achieved through more intensive expansion of wind energy onshore. With this perspective, more than 200 experienced experts are driving the expansion toward 100-percent renewable energies. “This is how Alterric wants to make a significant contribution to climate protection, sustainability and the conservation of the planet,” explains Dr Urban Keussen, board member at EWE AG and Managing Director of Alterric .
