EKZ Renewables AG takes over PESMA I wind park in Portugal and Garlipp IV in Germany
EKZ Renewables Ltd purchases two wind farms in the north of Portugal. They generate around 19 million kilowatt hours of electricity, equivalent to the consumption of over 4200 four-person households.
EKZ Renewables Ltd has purchased its twelfth wind farm. Four new wind farms in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt generate electricity for around 5500 four-person households. This brings EKZ Renewables Ltd significantly closer to its objective of generating 400 gigawatt hours of electricity a year from European wind power by 2016.

Welcome to EKZ Renewables

Welcome to the website of EKZ Renewables Ltd. We are involved in renewable energy projects both in Switzerland and abroad. Our area of expertise lies in the acquisition and management of investments in wind farm companies and the management of an investment in a concentrated solar thermal plant.

If required, the green power certificates generated during production will be used by the Elektrizitätswerke des Kantons Zürich (EKZ) in the future or the electricity could even be imported into Switzerland.

We are a partner to HelveticWind, a joint venture involving several Swiss energy supply companies.

Our foundation
EKZ Renewables Ltd was founded in May 2011 by EKZ as a Swiss investment company. We are headquartered in the Canton of Zurich and are fully owned by EKZ.

Our future
We are actively seeking out further investment opportunities in neighboring countries and plan to invest around 600 million Swiss francs in the next few years. The focus is on the areas of wind energy (onshore) and photovoltaic power plants.
