Developer WPD secured some 50MW of grid capacity in Germany’s latest onshore wind auction.

WPD wind farm projects including Lange Heide 2, Hofgeismar, Schlenzer, Hohenseefeld 3 and Windpark Blender were successful in the auction.

In addition, WPD will implement the Windstrom Erneuerbare Energien Riede project in cooperation with WindStrom group.

“In the first auction with a level playing field WPD was able to prove that we are still successful in the German market," said WPD executive Hartmut Brosamle.

“It was the right decision not to take advantage of the legal loophole and to set up so-called community projects as other competitors did," he added.

Earlier this month German grid regulator BNetzA awarded 709MW of grid capacity to 83 onshore wind farm projects in the country at an average support price of €47.30 per megawatt-hour.
