Enefit Green, renewable energy arm of state-owned Eesti Energia group, produced 96 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity in May, which is 15 percent more than the amount produced in May 2019.

This was the seventh consecutive month for the company’s monthly output of renewable electricity to be growing year over year. 

In May of last year, the company’s electricity output totaled 83 gigawatt-hours.

The amount produced in May 2020, 96 gigawatt-hours, would suffice to cover the average annual consumption of approximately 32,000 households.

CEO Aavo Karmas said that good dependability of generating assets has enabled the company to increase output.

“Also our output of solar energy has grown remarkably compared with the same period of last year, as in addition of Estonian plants also the solar power plants in Poland that we acquired a year ago are showing good production now,” Karmas said. 

The output posted for May represents the output of Enefit Green’s wind farms in Estonia and Lithuania, solar plants in Estonia and Poland, the cogeneration plants of Paide, Valka and Brocen, the Keila-Joa hydroelectrict power plant, and the renewable energy solution of the island of Ruhnu.

The thermal energy output of the cogeneration stations of Iru, Paide and Valka amounted to  41 gigawatt-hours in May.

The increase in renewable energy production is contributing to Eesti Energia’s strategic goal of producing 45 percent of its electricity from renewable and alternative sources by 2023.

Enefit Green is a renewable energy company belonging to the Eesti Energia group that currently owns 20 wind farms in Estonia and Lithuania, four cogeneration plants in Iru, Paide, Valka and Broceni, one hydroelectric power plant in Keila-Joa, 36 solar power plants in Estonia and Poland, and a pellet factory in Latvia.
