Bürgerwerke (2nd round)

Leading provider of green electricity from decentralized citizen energy cooperatives /

The climate crisis requires high investments in renewable energies and a fast pace. In Germany, a large number of citizen energy cooperatives have been founded that want to take the expansion into their own hands and overcome local resistance. However, they need support, including in marketing the electricity. Bürgerwerke enables regional civic energy cooperatives to set up regional civic electricity offerings and, as a comprehensive problem solver, supports the civic energy cooperatives in marketing and project development.

Under the umbrella of Bürgerwerke eG, more than 100 citizen energy cooperatives with more than 50,000 members have joined forces since its founding in 2013 to advance the energy transition in citizen hands and to expand citizen energy as a strong pillar of renewable energy supply. Thanks to strong sales figures, Bürgerwerke is the leading provider of green electricity from decentralized citizen energy cooperatives. Bürgerwerke has a proven and scalable business model and plans to continue to significantly expand its customer base in the coming years. With the “energy citizens”, the company addresses a target group in a special way, for whom the decentralized energy application is a strong concern. The range of products and services is also to be expanded in a targeted manner. For the realization of these growth steps, Bürgerwerke has secured another financing round in Q2 2024 with support from FASE.
