Renewable energy

An essential component of the energy supply of the future

Renewable Energy

innogy plans, builds and operates systems for renewable energy production and generation. Our aim is to swiftly expand renewables, both on our own and with partners. Become part of this success story – from wind power to hydropower, through to solar systems. We are currently focusing on expanding our wind power portfolio.

Onshore

For example in collaboration with the city of Bedburg, we operate a wind farm on the Königshovener Höhe, a recultivated area of the Garzweil open-cast mine. The 21 wind power systems can supply the equivalent of around 58,000 households with green energy. Through the participation of the city in the wind-power project, citizens also benefit from lower burdens on the budget.

Offshore

As wind blows stronger and more evenly on the high seas, offshore wind farms can better exploit wind. We believe that in the long run this could lead to lower electricity generation costs. However, in the meantime there are significant challenges to be overcome in terms of technology and material. With existing wind farms in the North Sea and Atlantic, innogy now has the experience to implement such ambitious projects. An example is the offshore wind farm Galloper which is being built off the coast of Suffolk and shall start operations in 2018.

Stormy adventure

innogy is constantly searching for employees to carry out these tasks – smart people who always look to the future. This leads to a wealth of career prospects and deployment opportunities, especially for engineers: with their knowledge of complex electric systems, they maintain and optimise our plants. Or they support us in project planning and implementation as well as storage solutions for offshore wind power systems. Here, our engineers find suitable ports and then develop the required concepts.
