Renewable Energies Expansion Campaign By 2025, SWM wants to cover all of Munich’s consumption with green energy generated in its own plants. Munich intends to be the first city worldwide with more than one million inhabitants to reach this ambitious goal. All in all, we will earmark a budget of ₏ 9 billion for the expansion of renewable energies in the period until 2025. SWM uses a wide range of natural resources, i.e. water, wind, sun, geothermal power, biomass. SWM invests in Munich and the region, but also across Europe at suitable locations.
