Optimum Conditions

Energy State Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is a location of energy. The conventional power generation is currently undergoing a period of transition, which did not  just begin with the turnaround in energy policy.

Fossil resources like coal and natural gasoline are still used. The construction of the Russian natural gas pipeline running through the Baltic Sea to Mecklenburg-Vorpommern contributes to solid power supply. However, the focus has massively changed within the past decade clearly committing to renewable energy. The branch is highly dynamic and emphasizes innovative capacity. Technologies like wind and waterpower systems drive further development of renewable energy to become a supporting pillar of power supply in Germany.

The Region of Renewable Energies

Today, the total gross proportion of renewable energy (wind, bio, water and solar energy) constitutes approximately 100 per cent of energy in MV. With the aid of “Baltic 1”, the first commercial offshore wind park with 21 wind turbines, this percentage could be increased even further. Baltic II is in the first stages of construction and Arcadis Ost I is already approved.

Focus on wind energy

Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is one of the leading regions in the field of wind energy. According to the latest study of Deutsche WindGuard, more than 1,612 wind turbines produce about 2,338 megawatts of energy (onshore). Thus, more than half of the net energy consumption for the region is already provided. The proportion of wind farms in the region (currently 0.6%) is predicted to increase to 1.5-2.0%, prompting billions of euros in investment. Mecklenburg-Vorpommern owns a large proportion of companies in the wind energy sector. Made in MV applies to almost the entire value-added chain, from the baseplate to the rotor blade.

Focus on bio- energy

Bio-energy is the second most common energy source in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern after wind energy. Roughly 36% of energy gained from renewable sources comes from biogas. With about 1,100,000 hectares of farmland, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern offers a high proportion of biomass. There are currently about 263 biogas and biomass facilities in operation in the region.

Benefit from Sustainable Production and Low Energy Prices in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

The high level of networking between research and industry has made MV one of the leading German regions in wind energy and offers companies excellent opportunities for growth within the world market:

The Wind Energy Network Rostock e.V. with its 118 member companies is the leading company network for wind energy in the North-East, as well as being a regional contact for offshore wind energy businesses in Germany.

EnviMV e.V. is the environmental technology network in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern - an amalgamation of 18 companies from within the region which represent common interests.
