Baltic renewables developer Enefit Green is moving ahead with building a wind farm in Estonia as well as a solar park in Poland.
The 21MW Purtse wind farm, which will have five turbines, will be operational next year.
Aavo Kärmas, chairman of the management board of Enefit Green, said the construction of a new wind farm in Estonia is “good news”.
He said: “Purtse Wind Farm is the first larger wind farm to be built in Estonia in several years and green electricity from the farm will reach Estonian homes already next year.
This shows that the production capacity of cheaper and environmentally sustainable energy can be added to the market fast if the permitting process is completed.
“Enefit Green has several ongoing projects in Estonia that could enter the construction phase fast with a supporting societal and economic environment.”
The 6MW Debnik solar park will add to Enerfit’s solar portfolio in Poland, which comprises 19 sites.
Kärmas said the development of solar energy in Poland is facilitated by opportunities to enter into long-term power purchase agreements and participate in auctions.
