Total annual wind-generated electricity sales grew from €53.9 million in 2007 to €99 million in 2008, an increase of nearly 50%.
Electricity sales for own account more than doubled with installed capacity for own account growing from 333 MW as of December 31, 2007 to 360 MW as of December 31, 2008. This significant increase illustrates the impact of the full year consolidation of the 165 MW acquired by the Group in Germany in July 2007.
Electricity sales for third parties in 2008 grew by more than 50% relative to the same period in 2007. As of December 31, 2008, the total number of MW managed for third parties amounted to 311 MW, compared with 297 MW as of December 31, 2007.
