Shaping Progress

The objective of PNE AG is to continue to successfully advance the energy transition through the expansion of renewable energies.

It is particularly important to us that the development of solar projects is transparent and based on the greatest possible consensus with local stakeholders. That is why we prioritise fair cooperation with municipalities and private landowners.

Every day we work with great passion to get closer to our goal, a vision of a one hundred percent energy supply from renewable energies. For clean, sustainable energy production - now and in the future.

Services and advantages

In all our international activities, we attach great importance to having expert knowledge of  local conditions in every case.

In the project planning of solar power plants, we focus on locations with high potential, to develop successful projects on greenfield sites – and always in cooperation with local experts, partners and stakeholders. Site evaluation, land acquisition, project development and the turnkey construction of solar power plants are among our core competencies for which we aim always to achieve the highest quality.

From project planning to project dismantling, with us you have a trustworthy, competent and genuine partner. Throughout the entire operating phase, we strive to maximise the output and life cycle of our solar power plants to achieve the best possible results together with you.


At PNE we regard the participation of local people as the key to success and respect and value their knowledge and commitment. Project participation is carried out by us through various individual concepts and at all levels, and we always try to involve local companies - whether for construction or just mowing work - in order to also generate local income in the region. Local residents can also participate in specific concepts that are customised for the local community. After all, it is local communities in particular that should benefit from the energy transition.

Which sites are suitable?

In principle, many sites can be considered. However, the framework conditions are different in each federal state and can be very complex.

On the one hand, we realise projects that are eligible for funding under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG): These include areas along motorways and active railways, as well as conversion areas. On the other hand, we also implement projects outside the scope of EEG funding. This is because in many countries around the world solar projects are already being realised without state support and subsidies. In order to advance the global energy transition, rapid and widespread expansion is ultimately necessary.

For our vision of clean, sustainable energy production to be realised - now and in the future -

conventional coal and nuclear energy must be completely replaced by high-quality solar energy and other renewable energy sources.


With us, you have a reliable and genuine partner at your side for the operation of a solar power plant on your land. As the owner, you benefit from a fixed lease for around 30 years and do not have to worry about permits and project planning, or the operation and maintenance of the project.

Solar power plants and biodiversity

The expansion of renewable energies, and in particular the installation of solar power plants on open spaces, helps the environment in two ways: We generate sustainable energy and reduce our carbon footprint and our dependence on fossil fuels - and we increase biodiversity by creating new habitats for insects, birds, and other animals.

During the operating time of the solar power plant, the soil of the area can recover from the intensive agricultural use of the past decades. There is no artificial addition of nutrients, pesticides, or insecticides. Likewise, any nitrate input into the groundwater through liquid manure and other fertilisers is suspended for this period.

In this way, significant amounts of polluting substances in soil and groundwater are completely eliminated, allowing vital soil life to recover and re-establish itself, and the biodiversity of small animals or rarer plants to increase significantly.

The absence of pesticides and fungicides also protects insects and wild bees from poisoning. Thus, wild herbs and flowers on the site of the solar plant, which flower throughout the year, always provide a sufficient supply of food during the flying season.

The resulting natural repopulation of insects and wild bees is a big plus, especially for the surrounding flora and fauna, because they also fly to the area around the solar installation and have a positive effect on the local ecosystem. Furthermore, the fenced area can provide beekeepers with a safe location for their bee colonies.
