Turning the Titanic of utilities

Giant utility PreussenElektra seems to be turning over a new leaf. "We have taken the signals seriously and since December we have begun to look at how to develop renewables," says Brigitta Nolopp from the company's strategic marketing division. PreussenElektra's move into renewables is being considered on several fronts, including wind plant development, attaching biogas facilities to conventional power stations, and buying hydro plant. Nolopp notes that Germany's new renewable energy law "encourages us to build renewables plant, and that is why we will build." Nolopp admits that the relationship between PreussenElektra and green power may appear "a grotesque marriage." The company has a reputation for strongly opposing pro renewables legislation.
