The use of wind power for the generation of electrical energy has been an important business segment since the foundation of the company group. The success of the meridian company group in the wind energy segment is evidenced by numerous projects, which have been realized primarily at locations in Thuringia.
The steady expansion of this business segment within Germany, but also in other European countries, is currently being actively promoted by the company group.
The wind power business segment is characterized by longtime project planning periods, which can be traced back to extensive official approval procedures and studies to be carried out.
In addition to the existing project pipeline, the meridian group of companies is always looking for suitable locations. The group of companies is flexible and open, so that projects in different stages of development, collaborations or new ideas and visions can be sought and implemented.
In order to improve the acceptance of wind energy in Thuringia among the population, the Thuringian state government has started an initiative for fair wind energy, which is actively supported by the meridian group of companies. The communities and citizens are involved in all phases of the projects. The ambitious goals for the expansion of wind energy in Thuringia can only be achieved with this greatest possible transparency.
Because of the fulfillment of the strict guidelines, the core brand "Meridian Neue Energien GmbH" was awarded the seal of "fair wind energy" by the Thuringian Energy and GreenTech Agency (ThEGA).
As a seal partner, meridian Neue Energien GmbH has undertaken to implement the requirements and principles of the service point described in the guidelines
- the participation of all interest groups in the vicinity of a wind farm during the entire project development period
- ensuring a transparent information policy
- development of individual participation opportunities for the affected interest groups
- inclusion of regional energy suppliers and credit institutions
Within the scope of the legally enacted energy transition, the meridian company group is also exploiting the potential of solar energy.
Throughout Germany, the group successfully operates a large number of photovoltaic plants in its own portfolio.
Since 2010, several photovoltaic plants have also been realized in the European market.
The meridian group of companies can look back on many years of experience in the area of roof-top systems as well as roof-integrated parking and ground based solar systems.
The group of companies covers the entire value chain from site acquisition, project planning, development and implementation to the operation of the photovoltaic systems. In accordance with the corporate strategy, the systems are kept in the group's portfolio for the entire duration, so that the construction and operation of long-term reliable solar parks is a key factor.
The core competencies of the meridian group of companies in the field of photovoltaics include the removal of roofs and asbestos in roof solar systems as well as specially developed parking lot roofing systems, the so-called STARS - "Solar Technology And Roofing Systems".
In Germany and Europe, the meridian group of companies was able to realize 50 solar parks with a total output of 57 MWp and transfer them to its own portfolio.
