  • 5. PNE WIND II 5 PNE WIND AGs business model One stop wind farm project planning Imagine you are building a house. You are unlikely to be in a position to do the necessary work yourself and you will need professionals to plan, perform and supervise the necessary work in a reliable and efficient manner for you. This is precisely the role we take on in the wind farm project development. At PNE WIND AG our business is to develop wind farms which upon completion supply clean and reliable electricity for years to come. Our scope of service begins with the first survey and continues through all steps in the value added chain. Once the turbines are installed we offer operation and maintenance service to our customers to ensure the wind farms efficient operation. When we sell our projects is determined on a case by case basis but generally speaking we sell onshore wind farms after commissioning on a turnkey basis and offshore wind farms prior to construction on a ready to build basis. Thus, PNE WIND AG covers each individual phase in the establishment of a new wind farm. PNE WIND AG has been operating successfully in the wind energy market since 1995. In doing so, our wind farms are making a significant contribution to improving the sustainability of our power industry as well as making an effective contribution to climate protection. We are helping to develop a future oriented technology, which promotes employment opportunities at home and lessens our dependence on foreign energy sources. PNE WIND AG is focused on creating added value for our shareholders by capitalizing on the business opportunity created by the growing need for reliable and sustainable power solutions.

PNE WIND AG is therefore not exclusively a developer but also an “independent power producer” (IPP). This means that PNE WIND AG, as an independent operator, feeds electricity generated by wind power into the electricity grid of the Federal Republic of Germany. Why, as a project developer, do we also operate wind farms ourselves instead of just selling them? As an example, let’s take the “Altenbruch II” wind farm which was commissioned in 2009. At this location we have installed wind turbines designed for offshore operation due to the very strong wind conditions (up to 8.0 m/s at a hub height of 105 m) and the wind farms close proximity to the sea. This provides us with firsthand experience in the operation of offshore wind energy systems which helps us better understand the challenges of this exciting new market. Last but not least the cash flows generated from our own wind farm operations also provide important resources to fund our development activities.
  • 8. 8 II PNE WIND Planning and realising wind farms on land From the site survey to the completed wind farm An analysis and the acquisition of a suitable wind farm site mark the beginning of any project. Based on the local conditions, the wind turbine to be constructed is chosen and subsequently the necessary approval process is initiated. An important point is also the financing. Here, our experts have many years of experience and comprehensive specialist knowledge. In addition to the financial analysis, this phase also comprises the legal structuring of the subsequent operating company, selling the wind farm to investors and securing the actual project financing. When approval has been granted, the wind farm can be constructed. For this purpose, the grid connection must first be laid and the corresponding infrastructure provided. Thereafter, the wind energy systems are assembled and commissioned. Afterwards, the wind farm is handed over to the operators. After commissioning, we do not leave them to their own devices. On the contrary: we offer to take over the technical and commercial operation to ensure that the wind farm runs as efficiently as possible. Currently, we are working on onshore wind farm projects at home and abroad with a volume of approximately 3,100 MW. Windpark Langwedel

PNE WIND II 9 PNE WIND AG – present in international growth markets “Made in Germany” as the foundation for successful expansion Already today we are using our specialist knowledge we gained in our German home market in international markets and thereby extend our success to other countries. As a secure, efficient and environmentally friendly source of electricity, wind power is gaining in international importance. This leads to the creation of market opportunities, which we will exploit decisively! Hungary, Bulgaria, Rumania, Turkey, Great Britain, Canada and the USA – Currently, we are already represented in these growth markets either in joint ventures with local partners or through our own subsidiaries. We will continue to pursue this route of international expansion by constantly monitoring developments in new target markets.

  • 10. 10 II PNE WIND The future of energy supply “Wind power plants” on the high sea The construction of a wind farm on the high sea (offshore) makes new demands on the project team. Water depth, shipping lanes and tidal movements pose significant challenges to planning. In addition, the approval process for offshore wind farms is substantial and requires an auditing process lasting several years. With four approvals already having been granted for our projects in German waters, PNE WIND AG has been successful in providing evidence of its competence in this field. In total, we are currently working on nine projects in the North Sea. Due to the location – often far from the coastline – the demands on material are particularly high. The foundations must be robust and the wind energy turbines themselves must be capable of withstanding enormous loads. PNE WIND AG is already gaining practical experience in this respect by operating the Cuxhaven offshore reference field “Altenbruch II” wind farm. Here, there are high wind speeds, comparable with those prevailing on the high sea, which allows us to gather important knowledge for the operation of offshore wind farms. Neither the European nor the German climate targets can be achieved without an expansion in offshore wind power. The generation of electricity by means of “wind power plants” offshore provides a number of advantages: the availability of large areas with high average wind speeds make the operation of wind farms here particularly attractive. For this reason, PNE WIND AG indentified offshore wind as a growth market at a very early stage and will expand this further in the medium and long term. In addition, we will also employ our know-how in the development of international projects.

  • 13. PNE WIND II 13 Technical and commercial business operation Service for the ongoing business • Technical supervision • Wind farm management • Commercial support After completion, commissioning and handover of the wind farm to our customers, PNE WIND AG continues to support the wind farm operation through our “Operation and Maintenance” division. We take over the technical and commercial operation management to ensure the turbines operate as efficiently as possible. As part of our service offering, we supervise the wind energy systems in order to recognise problems at an early stage, thus avoiding or minimising potential down times. Whenever possible, we ensure that scheduled service and maintenance is not carried out at times when strong winds are forecasted thereby reducing the possibility of lost revenue. Our commercial management offering is designed to provide a complete service package for the owners of wind farms. We also offer our technical and commercial operation serviced to wind farms that were not developed by PNE WIND AG. We would be happy to personally inform you about all of the benefits of this service.

  • 15. PNE WIND II 15 To the point: Repowering Greater efficiency, higher returns Repowering is a term when new and more efficient wind turbines are used to replace older systems which have reached the end of their functional design life. In the wind sector constant technological advancements contribute to efficiency improvements and a significant increase in performance can be achieved by modernising wind parks. This benefits both the climate as well as the operator. This is why, in the medium to long term, repowering is increasingly important in established markets such as Germany where there is a large number of older turbines installed in areas with very strong wind resources. The German renewable energies law (EEG) supports this trend and a bonus is paid for electricity generated from “repowering projects” and supplied to the grid. This business sector is being actively developed by PNE WIND AG. With the successful repowering of several wind farms in Germany, we are able to clearly demonstrate of our expertise as a project developer.

  • 17. PNE WIND II 17 Energy of the future Ecologically correct, economically sensible, secure, attractively priced Electricity drives the world forward. To date, worldwide supply has been based above all on the use of limited fossil fuel resources such as oil, coal and gas which has resulted in massive amounts of pollutants being released into the atmosphere The effects of climate change are already noticeable. This combined with uncertainty concerning the availability of these raw materials have led to a reassessment in the way governments are choosing to meet future energy needs. Renewable electricity production is increasing seen as a solution which lessens our dependence on fossil fuels, avoids the need for energy imports from abroad and ensures a sustainable and attractively priced supply of energy. Wind power helps to avoid climate changing CO2 emissions which in turn benefits all of society. At the national level, countries benefit from lower energy imports and by providing the necessary areas for wind farm development, rural communities are offered a secure and profitable income. The expansion of wind energy also promotes the creation of new, future oriented employment. Finally, by making an investment in appropriate companies, investors are provided with an attractive investment – ecologically correct and economically sensible.

  • 19. PNE WIND II 19 Stable political framework conditions – the EEG in Germany The law provides attractive conditions and a high level of planning security Worldwide, the Federal Republic of Germany is considered to be the pioneer in climate protection. In the renewable energies sector this is above all due to the German renewable energies law (EEG), which has already been in force since the year 2000 and is now being copied throughout the whole world. The EEG establishes a legal framework on which the expansion of renewable energies in Germany is based. The EEG guarantees a fixed remuneration for every kilowatt hour of electricity generated from renewable energies. The law also states that electricity from renewable energies must be given priority for being fed into the grid. These provisions apply to all renewable energy suppliers such as sun, water, geothermal energy, bio mass and also, of course, wind energy.
