Decade That Matters

Explore the Decade That Matters

Ten years after BayWa r.e. was founded, we find ourselves at a unique point in time. We look at the conversations taking place, the solutions which are already here and what needs to happen over the next crucial 10 years if we are to turn a climate crisis into climate action.

BayWa r.e. Completes Construction of 250 MW Wind Farm

BayWa r.e. Completes Construction of 250 MW Wind Farm

Located northwest of Abilene in Rotan, Texas, the 250 MW wind farm has begun selling power into the grid and will generate enough clean energy to meet the electricity needs of more than 74,800 homes annually!

Making Renewable Energy Even Better

Making Renewable Energy Even Better

At BayWa r.e. we r.e.think energy – solar, wind, and bioenergy. Our mission is to make renewable energy even better. Not only looking to what comes next, but actively shaping it.

Working with businesses, installers, developers, utility providers, investors and governments throughout the world, we are helping them to realise their renewable energy ambitions through our depth of knowledge and expertise.

Constantly setting new standards and reimagining solutions to how we will meet the world's future energy needs, we are committed to making renewable energy even better for our customers and society.

Making waves in solar energy

As we all know, solar power plays an integral role in generating the ‘green’ electricity which is helping to reduce carbon emissions in markets around the wold. While, historically, these PV installations are often ground, or rooftop based – Floating-PV delivers an alternative approach when there are already pressures on land use and availability. 

The Netherlands is just one country which is now tapping into this form of electricity generation.

Repowering the local community

At BayWa r.e. we’ve always seen the future of renewable energy schemes placed firmly in the hands of the communities that benefit from them.

So, when the German region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern brought in the Citizens and Municipalities Participation Act in May 2016, we saw this as a fantastic opportunity to start future-proofing our processes and get local citizens involved. 

The act states that wind farm developments in the area must offer at least 20 per cent of shares to people living in the immediate vicinity and to the local municipality, so we reviewed our timelines and sought to bring them in on the project as early as possible.

Weak grid: sustainable production with PV hybrid systems

Rwanda, in East Africa, has seen steady economic growth over recent decades. It has great untapped potential for renewable energy, with high solar radiation and plenty of opportunity for hydro power.

However, much of the rural population remains without electricity and for those people and businesses lucky enough to be connected to the grid, supply can be intermittent and unpredictable.

This is where renewable energy is playing a fundamental role in Rwanda’s future, and The Sorwathe Tea Factory is a great example of this. Here, we’ve installed a bespoke solar diesel hybrid system for Rwanda’s only FAIRTRADE-certified tea factory, which every year produces an incredible 3.2 million kg of tea.

This project is part of the worldwide ‘dena’ Renewable Energy Solutions Programme coordinated by Deutsche Energie-Agentur (dena), the German Energy Agency, and co-financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

An industry first for service standards

The ongoing operations management and maintenance of renewable energy plants is crucial to ensuring they operate at peak efficiency. 

A skilled service provider will make the difference between an underperforming plant and one that achieves optimised outputs and higher yields.

But all service providers are not the same. And in a rapidly evolving market where digitalisation is transforming what service providers can offer, investors and owners of renewable energy plants need to make sure they have the very best partners in place. 

To provide transparency and give plant owners confidence they are working with the very best, SolarPower Europe brought together leading service providers to form the Operation & Maintenance (O&M) Task Force.

Their mission? To create an industry first – the Solar O&M Best Practices Mark.

High tech meets historic – solar energy in the Vatican

Vatican City may be the smallest sovereign state in the world, but it is also one of the greenest. It has long been an exemplar for tackling climate change through its approach to renewable energy. 

Thanks to a unique photovoltaic plant installed on the roof of the Vatican Audience Hall, the Papal State has been producing 300 MWh of solar energy every year since its installation in 2008.

The project was planned and managed by BayWa r.e.  with the PV modules, inverters and its installation donated by solar technology provider, SolarWorld.
