Enefit Green, a renewable energy subsidiary of the Estonian state-owned energy group Eesti Energia, produced 122 gigawatt-hours of renewable electricity in April, 44 percent more than in the same month last year, when the company’s production totaled 85 gigawatt-hours.

The electricity produced during the month would suffice to cover the average consumption of close to 40,000 households for a year.

Aavo Karmas, chairman of the management board of Enefit Green, said that the high production volume in April is attributable to strong winds, particularly during the first half of the month.

Most of the production came from the company’s wind farms, which produced 104 gigawatt hours of electricity in April.

In addition to the wind farms, Enefit Green’s production results for April also include the production volumes of the company’s solar farms in Estonia and Poland, the Iru, Paide, Valka and Broceni cogeneration plants, Keila-Joa hydroelectric power plant and the Ruhnu renewable energy solution, which gave about 18 gigawatt -hours of electricity in total.

In addition to electricity, Enefit Green’s Iru, Paide and Valka cogeneration plants also produced about 43 gigawatt hours of heat.

The increase of 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 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.

The company is one of the largest renewable energy producers in the region and the largest producer of wind energy.
