TOWARDS A SUSTAINABLE CITY

We want to create sustainable cities - and lead the way towards a sustainable future. Climate change, urbanization and energy consumption are posing unprecedented challenges to our living spaces and economic areas. But we also have the unique opportunity to reinvent them. We need courageous concepts, political vision and imagination in order to source our energy differently, to rethink mobility and to align public spaces with people's needs. We need courageous concepts, political vision and imagination in order to source our energy differently, to rethink mobility and to align public spaces with people's needs. This is exactly where Green City AG comes in - as a holistic energy transition company.

We aim for the big picture: Real structural change

Our answer to the energy question is 100 percent renewable energies. We are accelerating the expansion of green power plants and driving forward their market integration. Because with the convergence of the energy sectors electricity, heat and mobility, green electricity is becoming the most important energy source in all areas of life and work. We produce the active ingredient against the climate crisis: green electricity!

Green City AG is a holistic provider for the development, purchase, financing and operation of the energy production of the future. As an established project developer for renewable energy plants in the midsize segment, we stand for community-based development and financing of wind and solar power plants in Europe. Our goal is to build new wind and solar power plants and, at the same time, to establish the necessary structures for cross-sector green power utilisation.

Our impact on the energy transition

Initiators with vision and zest for action

Green City AG addresses citizens and decision-makers: To private and institutional investors, owners of real estate and neighborhoods, municipalities, institutions and companies. Their participation and acceptance is the key to the success of the energy transition. Because the decentralized energy transition and a new mobility culture are taking root on a small scale: It starts with every local person and their willingness to rethink the way we live.

Green City on the move

The Green City family despite the political challenges over the last 20 years has grown from the first solar project to a substantial portfolio of renewable energy power plants. Green City AG has 20 years of experience and history: the Green City solar pioneers and investors of the first hour have set out on a path towards a sustainable city, which we are still following to this day.

Green City e.V. – We make it easy, we create livable cities

A group of Munich residents founds the environmental protection association Green City e.V.* With projects and campaigns for climate protection, a greener city and a move away from car traffic, the association relies on citizens: On their commitment, awareness raising and socio-political discourse.

*The association was founded in 1990 under the name “München 2000 Autofrei” – Munich 2000 Car-free – and renamed in 1995.

Solar pioneer – We involve investors in the financing of energy system transformation.

In 1999, the association became active in energy policy for the first time. We show how the energy transition can work in the hands of citizens: With the financial support of 136 investors, we install the first solar roof systems in Munich – the world’s largest citizen participation system at the time. Five more citizen funded solar parks are being built shortly after.

Green City Energy GmbH – We become pioneers of renewable energies

In 2005, the association founded the subsidiary Green City Energy GmbH to professionalize and plan regenerative power plants – the foundation for today’s Green City AG was laid. As a green energy supplier, we expand our range of activities from solar power to water and wind power, biogas, contracting and municipal energy consulting.

Foundation of Green City Energy France Sarl

With its branch in Toulouse, France, Green City is strengthening its reach on the international market. In addition to Germany and Italy, we are now also operating in France as a project developer in the field of renewable energies.

Green City Energy AG – We accelerate the expansion with our own power plants throughout Europe.

Green City Energy GmbH becomes a public limited company in 2011. With our investments in power plant parks I, II and III, we begin to build up our own capacities and drive forward the expansion of wind, hydro and solar power. We are opening up markets in Germany, Italy, France and Spain.

Green City Projekt GmbH – We support municipalities, institutions and companies

The subsidiary Green City Projekt GmbH was founded by the association in 2003 to organise major events such as the Streetlife Festival and the Blade Night in Munich. In 2012 Green City Projekt becomes a consulting & communication service provider.

Energy suppliers – We bring 100 percent green electricity and e-mobility into the city

In 2017, we founded our own green power brand and were one of the few providers to supply green power from new builds. With our POWER tariffs, we supplied private and business customers – and went one step further: Green City Energy AG sees the time for sector coupling has come and entered the e-mobility market with e-scooter sharing.

Green City AG – We promote the market integration of renewables

The economic efficiency of renewable energies and the intelligent networking of green electricity, heat and e-mobility open up new opportunities that we are seizing with the reorganisation as Green City AG: Green City Energy AG and Green City Projekt GmbH merge into one. And with it green electricity production, financing and consulting are combined – supplemented with new business fields in green energy sales. As a company dedicated to bring about a shift in the areas of energy generation and mobility, we stand on three pillars of hydroelectric, wind and solar power and bring electricity from renewable sources into urban areas – we create the infrastructure for e-mobility and energy solutions.

Founding of Green City Italia Srl

Since 2013, Green City has been acting as a project developer for renewable energy plants in Italy. With the official foundation of Green City Italia Srl, we are further strengthening our impact and reach on the European market.

First solar project in Spain

With “El Marqués”, Green City is expanding its country radius and can now add Spain to its project locations.

Green City focuses on accelerating the energy transition

In the election year 2021, we were able to drive the energy transition forward with new projects in the wind and solar sectors. For example, the groundbreaking ceremony was held for our largest solar park in Bavaria to date near Reuth in the Upper Palatinate with an output of up to 10 MWp. In the area of local climate protection and acceptance of wind energy, we were able to record a success with the positive referendum on the “Ebersberger Forst Wind Farm”. We expanded our project pipeline in other European countries.
