Eesti Energia signs record electricity sales agreement in Poland

Estonia’s energy company Eesti Energia signed a record electricity sales agreement with the international telecommunications company Orange Polska, through the subsidiary, Enefit Polska.

During the three-year contract, Enefit will supply 510 gigawatts per hour (GWh) of electricity annually, which will cover the electricity consumption of all Orange Polska’s server rooms, mobile base stations, control centres, offices and customer service points. The annual volume of electricity sold is comparable to the electricity consumption of the whole of Estonia in the summer month, which is almost 650 GWh.

“In a few years, Poland has become our second largest sales market after Estonia,” said Agnes Roos, Member of the Management Board responsible for Eesti Energia’s Customer Services. “We see the fastest sales growth in Poland and great potential for growth in both the development of renewable energy and the offering of smart energy services to customers. The successful transaction shows both the strength of our international team and proves that there is room in the Polish market for an energy seller who offers solutions that meet the customer’s needs and a long-term partnership.”

Enefit started serving business customers in the Polish electricity and gas market in the summer of 2017. The volume of the Polish electricity market is about 160 terawatts per hour (TWh) per year, which is more than six times larger than the total Baltic electricity market, which was 25 TWh last year.
