  • Contracts for 300 megawatt project volume already signed
  • 1 billion euro investment volume targeted in the next 4 years
  • Track record of the Green FOX Energy team of more than 2,500 megawatts
  • Company at INTERSOLAR Munich for further talks

Hamburg/Munich, 11 May 2022. Hamburg-based investor and entrepreneur Jörn Reinecke is expanding his commitment to the renewable energy sector and plans to invest a total of one billion euros through Green FOX Energy over the next four years. Reinecke is the founder and owner of the Hamburg-based renewable energy power producer Green FOX Energy, a major shareholder in the Düsseldorf-based industrial, commercial and logistics real estate developer DFI Real Estate GmbH & Co. KG and the Hamburg-based real estate project developer MAGNA Real Estate AG. He is a renowned energy and real estate expert as well as a successful investor.

With his entry and additional capital, Green FOX Energy aims to accelerate growth in its core business – the development and operation of sustainable, high-performance renewable energy plants with a focus on Germany and Spain.

Reinecke, founder and shareholder of Green FOX Energy: „My commitment to Green FOX Energy perfectly complements my previous entrepreneurial activities and fits the times. In the long term, the contribution to an ecologically sustainable world will have to come from renewable energies. At Green FOX Energy, we therefore set ourselves the goal of contributing to this change in the long term as an independent power producer and portfolio holder – from project development to financing and construction to the maintenance of the plants.”

With its plants, Green FOX Energy contributes to a low-carbon economy. The company invests primarily in plants that are already connected to the grid or in ready-to-build project rights. However, Green FOX Energy also invests in earlier project phases if the team can use its development expertise or pre-finance certain development phases to ensure that they are ready for construction.

To this end, the GREEN ENERGY FOX team is constantly sounding out the market for new investment opportunities in the field of renewable energies, with a focus on photovoltaics.

Jörn Reinecke explains: “We are looking for promising projects in various stages of development. In addition to already completed parks, Green FOX Energy is looking for projects ready for construction or projects in an earlier phase of project development, also with partners (co-developments), primarily in Germany or Spain.”
