Energiekontor and BaxEnergy to Elevate Wind and Solar Power Plants’ Performance

Catania, April 15th, 2024 – BaxEnergy is thrilled to announce that we have welcomed a new client in Germany – Energiekontor, a leading developer and operator of onshore wind and solar parks.

Founded in 1990 in Bremerhaven, Germany, as an independent power producer and provider for external operational management, Energiekontor manages more than a hundred onshore wind power plants and some photovoltaic (PV) plants, boasting an operational capacity of more than one gigawatt. As a developer of onshore wind and solar parks, Energiekontor significantly expanded its project pipeline in 2023 by more than one gigawatt to around 11 gigawatts. A significant proportion of this is also planned for the company’s own park portfolio. In addition, Energiekontor generally also takes over the operational management of the parks and projects that are sold.

Energiekontor’s commitment to advancing sustainable energy solutions makes it a key player in the renewable sector, with over three decades of experience in developing and managing wind and solar projects. The company’s vision for a sustainable future is evident in its consistent efforts to expand its renewable energy footprint while maintaining high standards of environmental stewardship and economic performance.

BaxEnergy: A Strategic Choice for Advanced Renewable Energy Management
