Importance of wind energy

Wind energy plays an important role in security of supply and is crucial for achieving climate neutrality in the energy system. It ensures value creation and employment as well as energy independence. In addition, the availability of renewable energies is a decisive location factor for economic regions.

For North Rhine-Westphalia, wind energy is a key industry and an important economic factor. It creates jobs and is an important component of a sustainable energy supply for North Rhine-Westphalia. North Rhine-Westphalia is not only an excellent location for the use of wind energy, but also a traditionally strong industrial location: 30 percent of the wind energy suppliers in the VDMA are based here and it also has the highest location density of gearbox manufacturers for wind turbines in the world.

According to an evaluation by the State Office for Nature, Environment and Consumer Protection of North Rhine-Westphalia* (LANUV NRW), 139 wind turbines with a total output of 825 megawatts (MW) were approved in the first quarter of 2024 (as of 4.4.2024). This corresponds to an increase of around 40 percent compared to the same period last year and almost a third of the nationally approved capacity of 2737 MW. This already corresponds to the result for the whole of 2022 and 43% of the capacity approved in North Rhine-Westphalia in 2023. This puts North Rhine-Westphalia ahead of Lower Saxony (504 MW) and Schleswig-Holstein (356 MW) nationwide. In addition, 28 new plants (133 MW) were commissioned in the first quarter of 2024. This means that 3,796 turbines with a capacity of 7,329 MW are currently in operation in North Rhine-Westphalia.
