As one of the pioneers of the German wind energy sector, Volkswind has been successfully developing, constructing, and operating onshore wind turbines for the past 30 years.
Volkswind has been committed to the energy transition with expertise and passion for the past 30 years. Our objective is to increase the percentage of wind powered energy in the electricity mix and thus create a future worth living for generations to come.
We plan, construct, and operate onshore wind farms throughout Europe, taking care of everything from the initial concept, development, and operational phases to maintenance.
Volkswind's interdisciplinary and international team has already erected over 80 wind farms with a total output of almost 1,500 MW, a level of power production of which we are justifiably proud and will continue to expand. We are one of the top 10 project developers, especially in our core market in France, where we are the leading tender winner.
Ever since we were taken over by the Swiss energy group Axpo in 2015, Volkswind has been even more strongly positioned to continue expanding its pipeline and diversifying its project portfolio.
Axpo is the European leader when it comes to marketing renewable energies and currently manages a portfolio of 95 TWh. Long-term power purchase agreements (PPAs) will enable Axpo to achieve further growth in the renewable energies sector. Axpo's expertise in the energy sector and its many years of marketing and industry experience make for a strong strategic partnership in the wind energy sector.
In addition to our previous core markets in Germany and France, Axpo, and Volkswind are also focusing on project developments in Romania and Finland and are continuing to expand our technical operations and asset management services.
