CrefoZert for excellent creditworthiness
We have received the CrefoZert creditworthiness certificate every year since 2016. In 2020, we achieved the second highest (of nine) rating class with an “excellent credit rating”.
The certificate is issued by the business information bureau Creditreform, Germany’s leading assessment company in the field of corporate creditworthiness. The award is based on a three-stage certification process, which includes a creditworthiness index, an analysis of the annual financial statements and personal answers to questions. As part of this audit, Energiequelle regularly demonstrates an excellent rating structure and meets all certification criteria.
Only around 1.7% of German companies meet CrefoZert’s strict criteria.
Partner for fair wind energy in Thuringia
Energiequelle is a ‘partner for fair wind energy’ in Thuringia. The state of Thuringia wants to cover one hundred per cent of its own energy needs from renewable sources by 2040. To ensure that the realisation of this vision is not only promoted, but also takes place within transparent and fair guardrails, project developers can undergo certification by the ThEGA Wind Energy Service Centre. The Brandenburg-based project company Energiequelle, which will complete its third wind farm in Thuringia at the end of 2016, recently received the corresponding ThEGA seal.
Part of the certification is a voluntary commitment to the guidelines set by the ThEGA for the fair expansion of wind energy. These include, among other things, that all stakeholders in the vicinity of the wind farm are involved throughout the planning phase of the project.
“Since the founding of the company, our aim has been to deal fairly with all project partners with a sense of comprehensive customer satisfaction. That is why we also support municipalities and municipal institutions in providing transparent information to residents from the very beginning. For us, the ThEGA label is a kind of official expression of the working philosophy that has always been part of our company culture,” says CEO Michael Raschemann.
Federal WindEnergie Association
Energiequelle has also been a recognised member of the advisory board of the federal WindEnergie Association (German: Bundesverband WindEnergie) since 2017. The seal is awarded under certain conditions for high commitment to constructive cooperation in the association’s advisory board.

We have been a Leading Employer since 2022. This puts us among the top 1 percent of employers in Germany. More than ten million data from around 160,000 companies were analysed for this purpose. Among other things, the ratings on various Internet portals, certifications, benefits offered, image, understanding of values, public relations, social media, talent communication and much more were taken into account. We did particularly well in the area of benefits and employee satisfaction.
