Leading Danish distributor of small wind turbines expands into Germany

CIRKEL Energi ApS, one of Denmark’s leading suppliers of small wind turbines and PV systems, expands its home market and sets up operations in Northern Germany. The German branch, CIRKEL Energie GmbH, is located in Flensburg.

“The German population in general is green-minded and motivated for investing in environmentally friendly products and solutions leading to a reduced carbon footprint. This makes Germany an interesting target for expansion, and with German state Schleswig-Holstein neighbouring Denmark, entering Germany there first has been an obvious choice. Germany is a large and mature market, and we plan to expand into more states in Northern Germany and create stable, green jobs there”, says Niels Martin Jørgensen, founder and director of CIRKEL Energi ApS.

“Our broad product program includes the Gaia-Wind 133 10 kW wind turbine, which is one of the most reliable, profitable, and validated small turbines in the market today. A Gaia-Wind 133 10 kW wind turbine can generate up to 45.000 kWh annually, which fully provides the amount of electrical energy typically consumed by a small enterprise or family farm. Economic feasibility, politics, planning regulations, and grid connection requirements, which all govern if and how a small wind turbine can be erected at given location, vary locally. CIRKEL Energie GmbH has inherited the capabilities of CIRKEL Energi ApS and will support and guide the customer through the entire project. We have employed our first German colleague, and the Danish team is already processing the first German opportunities and orders. Participation in a major regional farm show and an intensive active marketing effort in Schleswig-Holstein has already generated several sales opportunities as well as positive general response from the market. The future seems bright in this market”, concludes Niels Martin Jørgensen.
