Inspiring story in De Windvogel, the Netherlands


De Windvogel is a renewable energy co-op (REScoop) that produces renewable energy. This is one of their Enercon-manufactured wind turbines - ‘de Amstelvogel' – which is located near Amsterdam.

De Windvogel started in 1991 and has grown into an organisation with more than 3,300 members, who collectively own six wind turbines and two solar fields. The electricity that it produces is in turn used by its members.

De Windvogel now works together with 21 REScoops in the Netherlands under the banner of REScoopNL. Together they have 13,000 members and have 52 MW of installed capacity, and collectively push for more community-owned energy in the Netherlands.
