Eesti Energia’s renewable energy subsidiary Enefit Green produced 96 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity in May, which is 15 per cent more than last year. The company’s renewable electricity production has been growing year-on-year for the seventh consecutive month. The electricity produced would be sufficient to supply electricity for one year to almost 32,000 average consumption households.
“We have been able to ensure good reliability of our production units, which has enabled us to grow our renewable electricity production,” said Aavo Kärmas, Chairman of the Management Board of Enefit Green. “At the same time, compared to the same period last year, our solar electricity production has grown significantly, because, in addition to Estonian parks, our solar power plants in Poland which were acquired a year ago are now showing good production.”
Enefit Green’s production results for May include output from Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms, solar parks in Estonia and Poland, Iru, Paide, Valka and Broceni cogeneration plants, Keila-Joa hydroelectric power plant and Ruhnu renewable energy solution.
The increase in renewable energy production will contribute to Eesti Energia’s strategic goal of producing 45 per cent of electricity from renewable and alternative sources by 2023.
