With our offshore wind farms – such as EnBW Baltic 1, Baltic 2, Hohe See and Albatros – we have an installed output of 976 megawatts, while the figure for our onshore wind farms is 1,016 megawatts.
We are also making good progress with the development of solar parks: In spring 2022, the two solar parks Gottesgabe and Alttrebbin, each with a capacity of 150 megawatts peak, were fully connected to the grid. By 2022, the capacity of our solar parks was almost 500 megawatts peak.
We are traditionally well positioned in the area of hydropower. In 130 plants (including pumped storage with natural flow of water), we can draw on an installed capacity of 2,500 megawatts. Since there are hardly any suitable locations for new, large-scale hydropower plants in Germany, we are concentrating on so-called repowering, which involves modernizing existing plants to increase capacity.
Besides generation, we are also active in the area of trading – on stock exchanges or bilaterally between companies. Energy trading activities also include so-called dispatching – the name given to the on-demand programming of power plant output – or the trading of emissions allowances as well as coal and gas. We combine and market the decentralized and small-scale production of renewable electricity as a virtual power plant.
