Enefit Green (part of the international Eesti Energia group) produced 84 GWh in July 2020, which indicates a 30% year-on-year growth rate (64 GWh). This amount is enough to cover the annual electricity demand of 30,000 households with average levels of consumption.
Most of the renewable electricity, 70 GWh, was generated by Enefit Green’s Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms. The company’s solar power plants also showed good performance.
The 84 GWh produced in July include wind farms in Estonia and Lithuania, solar power plants in Estonia and Poland, as well as Iru waste-to-energy plant, Paide, Estonia and Valka, Latvia biomass power plants, and Brocēni pellet manufacturing plant, Latvia; the Keila-Joa hydroelectric power plant and a hybrid power generation facility on Ruhnu Island.
The increase in renewable energy production contributes to Eesti Energia’s strategic goal of producing 43% of electricity and heat from renewable sources in 2024.
Enefit Green (part of the international Eesti Energia group) brings together renewable energy companies in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland. There are total of 20 wind farms, 4 co-production plants, 36 solar power plants, a biomass pellet manufacturing plant and a hydroelectric power plant.
