With a potential total capacity of between 170 and 200 megawatts (MW), the wind farms could supply approximately 112,000 households with renewable energy and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions by about 252,000 tonnes per year.

Felipe Montero, CEO of Iberdrola Deutschland, commented on the success by saying:

"We are delighted to have been awarded the contract by ForstBW and will now enter the detailed planning stage. Projects of this kind emphasise Iberdrola Deutschland's ambitions in the onshore business area and validate our integrated growth and investment strategy."

In the planning, construction and operation of wind farms, Iberdrola Deutschland relies on local value chains. Local authorities and citizens are of course also involved in the successful implementation of this case.

In order to further promote the expansion of wind energy, a total of 21 individual sites have been put out to tender since 2021 as part of a marketing offensive. The award process took place in three tranches. In the course of which, about 3,000 ha of wind power sites were made available in the short term for future planning. The wind turbines that will be constructed on these areas will make an important contribution to a sustainable energy future in the region and the decarbonisation of the industry.
