Ikea acquires 45MW from Gamesa

GERMANY: Swedish furniture group Ikea has purchased six wind farms with a combined capacity of 45.05MW from Gamesa.

The wind farms are the Oberende (Lower Saxony), Diemelsee I and II (Hesse), Winterspelt I and II and Zettingen (Rhineland-Palatinate). All of the projects are in northwest and southwest Germany.

Ikea has made recent efforts to power its stores on renewable energy. Pilot projects on stores located in Brooklyn (USA), Ghent (Belgium) and Rostock (Germany) have been using solar energy.

In moving to wind energy, Ikea is following in the footsteps of the world’s biggest retailer Wal-Mart, which has signed PPA’s on a number of wind farms.

Other notable companies to move into renewable energy include Google, which has acquired a number of wind projects in the US.
