Bavarian electric power company
The Bavarian electric power company (Bayerische Elektrizitätswerke, BEW) maintains and operates 35 hydroelectric power plants on the Lech, Wertach, Iller, Günz and Danube rivers, as well as biomass power plants and distance heating networks. BEW’s aim is the ecologically sustainable operation of power plants.
As one of the project partners from the private sector and as a producer of renewable energy in the project consortium, BEW makes a valuable contribution to the technical discussion on the challenges and solutions involved in reconciling renewable energy production and nature conservation. The main areas of interest are ecological connectivity at water-retaining structures and the protection of the fish population in accordance with the European Water Framework Directive.
