RWE Brews Up Clean Energy in Poland

The development is located near the town of Nowy Staw, about 50km south-east of Gdansk.

It is owned and operated by RWE comprising three turbines, which together have a total installed capacity of 12MW.
Together they meets 54% of Kompania Piwowarska’s demand for electricity necessary to brew beer in the Dojlidy Brewery, Lech Browary Wielkopolski and Tyskie Browary Książęce.

The remaining 46% is already delivered by the existing wind farms in Nowy Staw.

LECH is one of Kompania Piwowarska’s leading brands, which has been implementing pro-environmental solutions across different areas of its activity and inspiring its consumers to carry out more eco-activities.

Igor Tikhonov, chief executive of Kompania Piwowarska, said: “Thanks to the agreement with RWE, we have lowered CO2 emissions from our breweries by 66% compared to 2019, which constitutes a milestone in the execution of our environmental goals specified in the Better Future 2030 strategy, which includes becoming carbon neutral across our breweries by the end of this decade.

“At the same time, our cooperation with RWE illustrates how we implement the overarching purpose of our company: creating meaningful connections.

“These are business partnerships based on similar goals and values, bringing benefits not only to the business, but also to the planet and community.”

Poland is one of RWE’s focus renewables markets in Europe.

The company already operates Polish onshore wind farms with a capacity of more than 470MW.

Construction of the Żnin project (48MW) is underway.

In addition, RWE is diversifying its renewables portfolio in Poland by investing in solar farm projects and has strengthened its business with the acquisition of 3 gigawatts solar pipeline in 2022.

The installation completed at the beginning of this year was built under the PPA concluded in 2019 between Kompania Piwowarska and RWE.
