Changing the world with energy – that’s what drives Polarstern and has enabled us to stimulate the market again and again – always with 100% renewable energy sources and a pinch extra of change.

Wirklich Ökogas.

It comes in three flavours: Wirklich Ökogas Klassik, Wirklich Ökogas vegan and Wirklich Ökogas GEG. Always from 100% biogas. TÜV certified and number 1 in the Utopia best list. It doesn’t get any more sustainable. Really.

Biogas CO2 neutral

Climate-friendly vroom: Autostrom.

Electric cars need green electricity. That makes them into really cool vehicles. Then, namely, they really are climate-friendly to drive. Different rates apply depending on the charging setup.

An old, new classic: Heizstrom.

In the past there were a lot of night storage heaters, of which only a few remain. Heat pumps are more common today. These are much more efficient, but they also need electricity. Choose the right source.


The perfect complement to your solar power: Wirklich Eigenstrom.

When you supply your own solar power and electricity storage, then Wirklich Eigenstrom is the icing on the cake: If you need more electricity than you produce, you buy 100% green electricity. Billing is based on consumption only, no basic fee.

Einfamilienhaus mit PV-Anlage

Special projects: Wirklich Mieterstrom.

We turn apartment buildings of all kinds into small eco-power plants. With PV systems, cogeneration units, heat pumps, electric charging stations, etc. Tenants use the locally produced energy, and everyone benefits: Building owners, landlords, tenants and of course the environment.

Our attitude: The economy is for everyone.

Maybe you’ve already heard: Polarstern was founded as a Social Business and has been part of the Common Good economy since 2016. That means we want to change the economy as a whole, not just the energy market. Led not just by financial figures, but by values. Acting in such a way that gives as much weight to ecological and social aspects as to economic considerations and goals. For us, money is an economic means for enabling a good life – not an end in itself. We’re right along with Aristotle here. But interpreted for today.

Please note: The switching process itself is in German; no documents will be sent in English. Of course, if you have any questions you can always contact us. We speak English.
