EnBW is committed to reaching 100% climate neutrality by 2035. As a trusted infrastructure partner, we want to ensure sustainability is the cornerstone of our global operations to create economic and environmental opportunities for our customers, shareholders, employees, partners and society as a whole – today and in the future.
To achieve this target, we have been on the path to transition to a more sustainable energy generation. In recent years, renewable energy has risen to comprise over one third of our portfolio, including offshore and onshore wind, solar, and geothermal technology.
Over the last decade, EnBW has demonstrated its leadership in offshore wind development through the design, construction, and operation of wind farms around the world. In Germany, we became one of the pioneers of offshore wind when we imagined and built the country’s first commercial offshore wind farm, and have since achieved an important industry milestone by securing Europe’s first and largest zero-subsidy offshore wind farm bid. EnBW is now active in offshore wind markets internationally and we are developing projects from North America to the Asia-Pacific region. EnBW proudly builds, owns and operates our projects, holding true to our good neighbor commitments.
The future of floating
As offshore wind becomes a mainstay of the energy transition in Germany, we’re looking at the potential to go further. Collaborating with engineers and suppliers, EnBW’s research and development team examined how they could redesign wind farms for floating offshore operations in deeper sea levels. The result is Nezzy²: an 18-metre-tall prototype built on a 1:10 scale consists of two wind turbines on a floating platform and is being tested jointly by engineering company aerondyn and EnBW.
EnBW has been at the forefront of the electromobility revolution. Our approach to sustainable transportation is simple: We want to bring e-mobility to everyday life. To do this we are focused on solutions that offer electric vehicle drivers reliable and secure charging solutions and an outstanding experience. We are a market leader and award winner in Central Europe for our EnBW mobility+ app which solves customer e-mobility needs through our network of 25,000 charging points.
