Wind power is an elementary building block for the implementation of our energy park projects. More specifically, due to the much higher full load hours compared to solar energy, wind power is essential to achieve 99% self-sufficiency in the heat supply from renewable energies. This high degree of self-sufficiency is necessary in order to be able to offer households permanently low heat prices.
In general, wind energy is a good complement to solar energy, as the wind usually blows more when there is hardly any sun, especially in the winter months when heat is needed.

Development of wind energy technology
The technical development of wind turbines in Germany over the last 20 years has mainly focused on the construction of ever larger systems. After the development from small (50 kW to 150 kW) to medium-sized wind turbines (500 kW and 600 kW) in the 1980s and early 1990s, the development of the megawatt class began in the early 2000s. This triggered rapid technical development. The largest systems currently available on the market have generator outputs of over 7.5 MW. Over the course of a year, such a system generates as much electricity as more than 5,700 households consume. As a result, the plants that are common today at one location produce many times more electricity than the plants of 20 years ago.
