Renewable Industry in Mecklen­burg-Vor­pommern


Ideal conditions in the energy region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern

67% of the electricity produced in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern comes from renewable sources. A quarter of it originates from biogenic materials and 13% comes from photovoltaics. The largest proportion is supplied by 1,889 onshore power plants and the three Baltic wind parks with 231 plants and 1,076.3 MW of output. The potential for expansion has already been considered with the planning of eight further offshore parks and a test field. The Baltic ports of Wismar, Rostock and Stralsund have made this development possible from the point of view of infrastructure. Sassnitz in particular has advanced to become an offshore hub for equipping the Baltic parks due to the settlement of numerous maritime service providers there.

The sector employs a total of some 13,700 staff and produces an annual turnover of 3.7 billion euros. In the context of manufacturing, the companies located here cover the entire value creation chain. In terms of figures, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s energy needs can already be covered to 100% and this will be correspondingly utilisable in future with the further development of storage technologies.

Compared to the gross domestic product, R&D costs in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern for renewable energy sources and system integration are the second or third highest in the whole of Germany. MV is also in a better position than many other regions as regards the proportion of specialised renewable energy degree courses. The number of relevant patent applications is also higher than average.

Dynamic research and networking

Research takes place mainly at universities and institutions in Rostock and Stralsund. With the Chair of Wind Energy Technology and the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Large Structures in Production Engineering, Rostock has placed a strong focus on wind energy but also concerns itself with issues to do with wind power plant recycling, prototype construction and manufacturing technology. In Stralsund, the focus is on regenerative energy systems at the relevant university institution. Energy conversion, storage and utilisation, automation processes and the use of alternative energies taking into account economic and environmental aspects are the main items on the agenda here.

A large number of networks promotes a practice-oriented exchange between science and industry. With around 300 members, the WindEnergy Network is one of the leading platforms. It is flanked by Mecklenburg-Vorpommern’s Regional Energy and Climate Protection Agency, the Regional Association for Renewable Energy and the North German Maritime Cluster and EnviMV for the field of environmental technologies.
