Windcentrale

Early Stage Startup





Tagline

Speeding up the sustainable energy transition!



Elevator Pitch

Launched in 2010, Windcentrale has raised over 15 Million Euro up until today, making it the world’s biggest renewable energy crowdfunding platform. We acquired 15.0000 participants who co-own 9 windmills totaling 14 MW. All the electricity produced by the windmills is subtracted from the participants energy bill. There is a huge demand for "windshares" as we currently have a waiting list of over 7000 households.

Our goal is to have 500.000 participants, equal to 7% of all dutch households. We did not yet set goals for our international ambition.

The Windcentrale aims ‘to accelerate the switch to sustainable energy.

Product

Participants buy one or more shares in a windmill. Each share will produce yearly 500 kWh green electricity. Because the participants own the windmill, they get the electricity for free. Via the Windcentrale App the participants can live follow their windmill.



Why we are ecofriendly

We aim to have within 8 years 500.000 participants co-owning 160 windmills with a combined capacity of 500 MW producing over 1 TWh clean electricity.

Latest News

We acquired the 9th windmill and have now over 15.000 participants including the Dutch development bank (FMO).
