FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Evonik secured about 100 megawatts (MW) of electricity per year from an EnBW offshore wind park, the latest in a string of German corporations to bulk up on renewable energy to reach greenhouse gas emission goals.

The German chemicals maker said in a statement on Thursday that it would start to receive its share of power from the 900 MW EnBW He Dreiht wind farm in the North Sea off the coast of Germany from 2026, eventually covering about a quarter of Evonik's electricity needs in Europe.
