With wind energy capacity increasing in the Benelux, both offshore and onshore, wind energy is becoming an increasingly important energy source. RWE is playing an important role in the energy transition in the Netherlands through its onshore wind farms.
RWE currently has a portfolio of just under 400 megawatts (MW) of established onshore power in the Netherlands. These wind farms were developed and built by RWE. They are also operated and maintained by its own local organisation and own personnel. At these 10 wind farms, there are small and large wind turbines with outputs varying from less than 1 MW to a maximum of 7.5 MW per wind turbine. The wind farms produce renewable energy comparable to the consumption of 370,000 households.
Wind energy essential to the energy transition
Wind turbines are one of the most effective and profitable ways of producing renewable energy. That is why wind energy is an important part of the energy transition. Certainly in the Netherlands.
