Nicht jeder ist zum Aktivisten geboren – aber Stromwechseln kann jeder!Greenpeace Energy is Germany’s largest national, independent energy cooperative. We supply more than 110,000 customers, of which about 9,000 are business customers, with clean electricity. In 2011, the product range was supplemented with proWindgas, an ecologically superior alternative to natural gas, making Greenpeace Energy an all-round energy supplier. The business is organised as a cooperative with 23,000 members whose contributions provide a solid equity capital base and, thus, stability. The fact that the members are not only the cooperative’s owners but also its customers serves to prevent conflicts of interest: towards an ecologically oriented business policy, rather than profit maximisation.
Through our subsidiary Planet energy we build our own power plants. Eleven wind farms and three photovoltaic plants totalling 65 MW are already in operation. Furthermore, we take a very active role in energy policy discussions and help to set the stage for the energy turnaround: We test new concepts, for example concerning electromobility, and we sponsor research projects to foster innovation and to smooth the way into a future of clean energy
