Empowering wind and solar energy
Countries, companies and private consumers around the world are turning towards renewable energy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and achieve energy independence. At BASF Performance Materials, we provide materials that enable the global transition towards renewable energy. And we walk the talk ourselves by securing renewable energy supply for our sites.
What are BASF solutions for wind and solar applications?
Wind energy is one of the fastest-growing sources of renewable energy, with wind farms being built all over the world. Our PU systems for wind energy applications help to make wind turbines more efficient and reliable. Our segment-focused experts will find the solution that matches your needs!
And we use wind energy ourselves at BASF: We have partnered with other companies to build one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world.
BASF's wind power applications
Wind energy is widely recognized as a clean and renewable energy source. BASF performance materials help power up wind parks. Our portfolio for wind energy application includes blade add-ons, leading edge protection, blade shell infusion, blade adhesive as well as shear webs. Check out their benefits below:
Did you know?
that BASF aims to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by the year 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. Replacing fossil-based electricity with renewable electricity is an important lever to further bring down emissions.
Advancements in technology have made solar energy more efficient and cost-effective than ever before. Solar panels are now installed on homes and businesses, and large-scale solar farms are being built around the world to provide clean energy to entire communities – or to BASF production sites like in Schwarzheide, Germany. For the electronic components of these installations, BASF offers special grades of the engineering plastics Ultramid® (PA) and Ultradur® (PBT). Our experts will guide you to a solution customized to your needs!
