As an Australian wind farm developer, WestWind Energy Pty Ltd is dedicated to the development, construction, operation and management of wind farms and other renewable energy projects in Australia.
The establishment of WestWind Energy took shape in 2003 from the idea of expanding the activities of the WestWind Group of companies internationally. At the invitation of the Victorian and Federal Governments the potential for establishing a new business in Australia was investigated and WestWind Energy Pty Ltd was established in Victoria, Australia in 2004.
WestWind Energy is part of the WestWind Group of companies. The WestWind Group headquarters is based in Kirchdorf in North-Western Germany.
The WestWind Group was launched with the establishment of the Wind Park Lemke project in the community of Marklohe in Germany in 1998. What started as a private project quickly led to a thriving business. The idea of cooperating with investors to combine profitability and environmental protection has proven to be successful. So far, 58 wind farms have been developed and 213 wind turbines have been commissioned in Germany by the WestWind Group. Today, well over 420MW of wind energy projects have been delivered by WestWind in Germany and most of them are operated under the company’s management.
In 2022, Shell Energy recognised the importance of WestWind’s contribution to the transition to renewable energy in Australia with an equity investment in our business. This has enabled us to accelerate our development activities across multiple new projects throughout Australia.
We are honest, open, ethical, and fair. We do what we say we will do, and people trust us to adhere to our word.
WestWind Energy’s mission is to be a driver of change towards a sustainable energy future for our planet. WestWind Energy’s contribution is through the development of cost effective renewable energy generation and storage solutions refined through technical excellence, commitment to communities, and cohesive company values.
