PNE WIND proceeds with the construction of its new 200 MW Portfolio

01.02.2018

PNE WIND AG has successfully completed construction of the “Kührstedt/Alfstedt” wind farm in Lower Saxony. The turbines have a combined capacity of 43.2MW and are feeding electricity to the grids since the end of 2017.

Since the “Kührstedt/Alfstedt” wind farm commissioning, PNE WIND AG has been benefiting from the sale of climate-friendly electricity produced by the wind farms. In this regard, the company looks back on years of experience as a wind farm operator. Currently, PNE WIND AG operates wind farms with a total nominal output of about 69MW, all of them owned by the company itself. Some of these wind farms will be selected for re-powering to be modernised and increase efficiency.

Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE WIND AG: “Considering the economic success during the last year, PNE WIND AG will certainly start the 2018 financial year with a tailwind. The increase in the nominal output of wind farms which we operate ourselves guarantees that we have constant income from operations; at the same time, we, as the operators, are able to continuously monitor the quality level of projects which we develop internally.”

Renewables covered around 52 percent of gross power consumed in Germany during the first quarter of 2020. This all-time high was driven by a combination of one-off events. Preliminary calculations by the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the German Federal Association of Energy and Water Management (BDEW) yielded this figure. February’s record winds were followed by an unusually sunny March. Power consumption was also down by one percent from the same period last year.
