Koehler Renewable Energy partners with Renewable Exchange for PPA strategy

March 26 2024

Since its foundation in 2012, Koehler Renewable Energy has established itself as an cornerstone of the Koehler Group, driven by a commitment to making a lasting contribution to the German energy transition. Together with business partners, Koehler Renewable Energy invests in biomass cogeneration plants, onshore wind power, photovoltaics, and hydroelectric power. An important pillar of Koehler’s energy investment strategy is to secure the best possible power purchase agreement (PPA) for their assets.

After completing a successful tender for 6 of their UK hydro assets, Koehler decided to take advantage of Renewable Exchange’s expansion into Germany to assist in their PPA strategy for their first German wind project. The wind park Wetzlar-Blasbach is an 8.4MW project located in Hessen, and will generate around 25GWh of power per year. The project came into commercial operation in the first quarter of 2024.

“As one of Renewable Exchange’s early users in Germany, we had a very positive experience. The Renewable Exchange team expertly guided us through the process of finding a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). We were able to evaluate multiple offers and power buyers and secured favourable prices and terms. This allows us to continue supporting Germany’s energy transition with our projects. We are excited to continue collaborating with Renewable Exchange in the future” said Cornelius Schulthess, Corporate Director Energy Supply Management, Koehler Renewable Energy.

The Renewable Exchange platform was launched back in 2018 and to date, more than 2,000 PPAs have been executed. We use technology and data to improve the PPA tendering process by making the process faster and more efficient, and by presenting bids more clearly with detailed analysis from our comparison tools. We save generators valuable resources and help optimise their decision-making process.
