Growth Course: Energiequelle Increases Sales to New Record Level in 2022

Kallinchen, Germany - Energiequelle GmbH can look back on a successful 2022 and achieves a new sales record.

With sales of 213 million euros in 2022, the company has achieved a sales record and thus also exceeded its profit expectations. The internationally active company has thus increased its sales by almost 34 percent to 213 million euros.

A total of 24 wind turbines, one solar farm and one transformer station were built in Germany, France and Finland in the last year 2022. The total capacity of the parks is just under 91 MW, as well as 25 MVA of transformer station capacity.

In operational management, Energiequelle won tenders for 22 wind turbines, twelve PV plants and a substation. The wind, solar and biogas electricity production of the currently 850 internationally managed plants amounted to around 2.5 billion kWh. This is 400 million kWh more than in 2021, Energiequelle announced. But the company is also active in the areas of heating projects / CHP, air conditioning / ventilation projects or energy audits.

A special project is the partnership in the reference power plant Lausitz (RefLau) for a so far worldwide unique power plant concept for the generation, use, storage and reconversion of hydrogen. The RefLau is a joint project of Energiequelle, Enertrag and the Industriepark Schwarze Pumpe association and has received a funding commitment of 28.5 million euros from the German Federal Ministry of Economics. Research partners are the Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Infrastructures and Geothermal Energy IEG (Fraunhofer IEG), the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg (BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg) and the Dresden University of Technology (TU Dresden).

Energiequelle currently employs more than 400 people at 20 locations in four countries and has built more than 850 plants with a total output of nearly 1,600 MW to date. In 2023, a further 93 MW of wind and PV capacity is to be installed and four substations are to be connected to the grid.
