With around 24,000 employees, EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG supplies around 5.5 million customers in Germany and Europe with electricity, gas and water as well as energy solutions and energy services. The installed capacity from renewable energies will be 50 percent of the overall portfolio at the end of 2025. This is already having a noticeable impact on reducing CO2 emissions, which EnBW wants to halve by 2030. The company wants to achieve climate neutrality in accordance with the Paris Agreement by 2035 at the latest. For the wind power sector - offshore and onshore - a capacity of 4,000 MW is to be achieved. In the field of offshore wind power, EnBW was one of the pioneers with the Baltic Sea wind farm Baltic 1, Germany's first commercial wind farm. In January 2020, the company commissioned Germany's largest offshore project “EnBW Hohe See und Albatros” with a combined output of 609 MW. In 2025, the “He Dreiht” offshore wind farm with an output of 900 MW is scheduled to go online without government subsidies.

Another success for EnBW: At the auction for the allocation of land rights by the British “The Crown Estate”, EnBW and its partner bp, based in London, were awarded the contracts for two large areas in the Irish Sea, which are considered to be the highest quality areas to be estimated in the first offshore wind area auction in England and Wales in ten years. EnBW and bp are planning two offshore wind farms here with a total output of three gigawatts, which they want to put into operation from 2028. This corresponds to the electricity supply of around 3.4 million households. In addition to Great Britain, EnBW is examining participation in other international offshore auctions, including in the USA and Taiwan.
