Altus AG will pursue the local development of these projects closely with EDF Renewables up to the construction of the future windfarms.

Located in 10 different federal states, the projects are at various stages of the development process.

The land lease contracts are secured and environmental studies are on-going. Once fully permitted, the projects will participate to the onshore wind auctions organized by the German Federal Government in order to secure 20-year Power Purchase Agreements.

The commissioning of these wind farms is due to happen during the next five years.

The acquisition of these onshore projects is in line with EDF Renewables’ strategy aimed at developing, building, owning and operating renewable energy assets in a long-term perspective in Germany.

First European country in terms of installed renewable energy capacity, this country is indeed a major market in which EDF Renewables has the ambition to strengthen its position by 2030 to be ranked among the significant players of the German wind energy market. â–
