Volkswind successfully established advisory board / currently 85MW in construction phase in France and Germany with 4 different turbine suppliers

Ganderkesee - Since January 2009, the Volkswind Group has an advisory board, which is composed of Prof. Dr. Klaus Töpfer, Prof. Dr. Norbert Walter and Hermann Graf Hatzfeld. The committee advises the management in respect of the strategic organization of the business model towards established and new renewable energy sources.

With wind energy as its core activity, the company is currently in the final construction phase of wind farms totalling 85MW. These are spread amongst France and Germany with turbines by the leading manufacturers Siemens, Vestas, Enercon and Fuhrländer. The 15 Fuhrländer turbines are the first Fuhrländer 2.5 MW turbines ever to be erected in France. Volkswind is thus expanding its balanced wind farm portfolio with different countries, tariff systems and turbine models in order to secure a stable energy output as an IPP. Through these new projects Volkswind will be able to supply energy to a further 40,000 households through harnessing the wind.

Volkswind was established in 1993 and is one of the leading IPP’s in Europe, with head offices in Germany, France, Great Britain, Poland and Bulgaria. The Group also branched into the US in 2008.

Prof. Dr. Klaus Töpfer was Under Secretary and Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme until 2006. Between 1987 and 1998 he was Minister for Environment and Transport in Germany.
Prof. Dr. Norbert Walter is Chief Economist of the Deutsche Bank Group.
Hermann Graf Hatzfeld is forest owner and environmental author.
