Wind energy supplies the largest share of green electricity
Onshore wind farms – wind power stations on land – are the biggest suppliers of green electricity. Over the past two decades wind power has become the most cost efficient source of renewable energy. In addition to the number of wind turbines, the capacity of the individual turbines has grown enormously. While in the 1990s the standard capacity was in the region of 600 kW, today’s state of the art turbines have a capacity of around 7.5 MW.
innogy is a driving force in this dynamic market. We are planning to grow further – together with our partners.

"I am delighted that the town of Bedburg has taken this opportunity to realise one of the largest and most powerful wind farm projects in North Rhine-Westphalia on Königshovener Höhe in cooperation with innogy.
