Enea Group is taking more and more decisive actions in the RES segment
Enea, as one of the largest concerns in Poland, feels responsible for the energy security of the state, is an active participant in the transformation of the Polish energy sector. For this reason, in addition to managing key conventional units, looking through the prism of the stability of the national power system, it takes more and more ambitious steps in the field of RES. Currently, Enea has 6.3 GW of total installed capacity, of which 414 MW is in RES (including wind power plants, hydro power plants and a biogas plant).
The company is analyzing the scenario for the construction of photovoltaic installations in the areas belonging to Lubelski Węgiel Bogdanka, which is part of the Enea Group. This project is particularly important, taking into account not only the investment in new green generation capacities, but also the fact that these activities will allow for the proper management of land belonging to a hard coal mine, previously equated with conventional energy.
Enea is also actively looking for new investment opportunities in the wind energy segment. The company is analyzing the acquisition opportunities, planning the next steps towards the implementation of offshore farms at the turn of 2020 and 2021.
– The company estimates that already in 2030 more than 40% of the electricity produced will come from gas sources and RES, while in 2035 this ratio will be approx. 60% – said Paweł Szczeszek, president of Enea. Importantly, these plans are consistent with the assumptions of the updated document “Poland’s Energy Policy until 2040”, thus being part of the government’s policy. Enea Group is also active in the field of electromobility. For this reason, the company launched a project called “Electromobility development program at Enea CG”, the purpose of which is to set a development model for this segment and to successively replace its fleet with new electric cars. In addition, Enea, in order to meet the expectations of the market, built electric vehicle charging stations.
