Since 2019 Daniel Hacker has been active for Hanse Windkraft in the areas of acquisition, project development and sales.
He has a degree in business administration and has been working in the wind industry since 2008.
Initially working for REpower Systems AG (later Senvion) in sales, he moved to Vestas in 2016 as Key Account Manager.
Since 2019 he has been strengthening the team at Hanse Windkraft with the aim of steadily expanding the project portfolio in order to continue to promote the energy turnaround. The focus is on the purchase of older wind farms in order to continue operating them after the end of the EEG funding period. Hanse Windkraft purchases wind farms with and without repowering options.
Many wind farm operators are currently faced with the question of whether they can continue to operate their wind farm economically under the EEG. The wind turbines are at an age when repairs unfortunately become more and not less. In addition, stock exchange electricity prices have settled at a low level.
In summary, it can be said that the risks of operating older turbines are increasing and at the same time the revenues are significantly declining.
Against this background, it is to be feared that many wind farms and individual wind turbines will be dismantled in the coming months and years.
And this is precisely where we want to be the "alternative to dismantling". We want to buy these plants and keep them in the energy turnaround as long as possible. Hanse Windkraft can pursue this goal because we can spread our risks across our portfolio. In addition, we are a subsidiary of Stadtwerke München and can draw on the know-how and services of the parent company, ensuring that they continue to generate green electricity even after the EEG subsidies expire.
