Enefit Green production data - May 2023

Enefit Green produced 87.0 GWh of electricity in May, which is 12% less than in the same period last year. The production result was mainly influenced by lower production in Estonian wind farms due to lower wind conditions.

New wind farms in Lithuania, Estonia and new solar farms in Estonia and Poland all helped boost electricity production (+16.2 GWh combined).

The average wind speeds in May were 5.2 m/s and 5.3 m/s, respectively in Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms (in May 2022, the measured average wind speeds were 6.2 m/s and 6.0 m/s, respectively).

The electricity and heat energy production of the cogeneration segment was also lower, decreasing by 16% and by 18% respectively compared to the same month last year. This was largely due to planned maintenances in Iru WtE, Paide CHP and Valka CHP. Pellet production increased by 34% compared to a year earlier to 14.3 thousand tons. The maintenance works are reoccurring annually, but with some timing shifts between weeks and months of different years.
