Who is The Dillinger Group?
The Dillinger Group offers comprehensive solutions in renewable energy with the main focus being on large-scale photovoltaic power plants, wind turbines, energy storage units as well as charging infrastructures. As well we being one of the most experienced operators of renewable energy plants in Germany (since 2008).
We acquire, among other things, completed plants, project rights for example projects ready for construction, projects under development and open spaces for project development. This entails all types of land, open spaces, car ports & greenhouses, roofs (industrial, commercial and residential).
With currently over 40 projects in Germany, 28 projects in Italy and numerous activities in Austria, The Dillinger Group is strengthening it’s position in the renewable energy market.
The 2.100 MWp in development/processing also meant that a historic enterprise record was broken. The main unique selling points are:
- Rapid decision -making processes
- Entrepreneur-led /founder-led with private capital and independent of banks
- Individual purchase and participation solutions for developers | project owners | plant owners | entrepreneurs, allowing them to participate in potential upside if they so wish
- Professionals with development, EPC and O&M/AM expertise
- In Germany and on-site in Italy, flexible and native speakers
The Dillinger Group achieves it’s contribution to an affordable and viable change from conventional power generation to sustainable, renewable energy production.
Together with citizens, municipalities, and businesses all over Europe, we strive for a greater acceptance of larger generation and storage plants as well as affordable energy for thousands of SMEs (small and medium enterprises).
We call for an unideological, scientific, and economically influenced rational view of the various opportunities for power generation and storage options.
By doing so, renewable energy systems will become the most economically viable generation plants. The company’s shared motto is to fight climate change in our daily business, which we continue to strengthen.
First and foremost, Germany and Europe need to rail back the excessive bureaucracy. The largest obstacles are in fact the local authorities with overstretched structures that are restricted by hundreds of guidelines.
In addition, reasonable prices need to be formed by clearer market pricing which are not distorted by subsidies. The price for electricity on the market over the last 35 years of 35 Euros per MWh or less does not represent a fair price, neither for conventional nor renewable energy sources.
It is well known that for decades, coal, gas and nuclear energy have been subsidised with hundreds of billions, thus distorting the real price. The final storage costs of radioactive waste from nuclear power production were even transferred to the responsibility of the general public, with further hundreds of billions of euros in additional costs.
The consequences of being dependent on Russian gas imports, and consequently the costs towards trying to be independent, (resulting in a loss of around 110 billion Euros over the last few months), is unique in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany.
And all that in comparison to total subsidies to all renewable energy plants since 2000 (approximately 220 billion euros), which in contrast does not seem as unequal as often portrayed.
In a highly industrialised economic area such as Germany or Europe, it is not possible, even on a transitional basis, to operate without the base load of nuclear power plants as well as fast-reacting (cold reserve) conventional power stations (gas, coal, etc.) – we can only do everything we can to make them dispensable as quickly as possible.” Simon Dillinger, CEO & founding shareholder
The Dillinger Group signs a land contract for 80 hectares with one of northern Italy's largest Parmigiano Reggiano producers. The aim is to build and operate a 55 MWp photovoltaic plant with a 35 MWp extension.
