Statkraft signs new 10-year green PPA with Kemira
Statkraft and Kemira have entered into another long-term power purchase agreement securing an annual delivery of almost 44 GWh renewable energy in the period 2022 to 2031. The power will be delivered from Statkraft’s portfolio in the Nordics to Kemira’s production facilities in Finland.
In addition, the agreement also includes Guarantees of Origin sourced from Statkraft’s wind power production at Fosen covering the total volume. In March 2020 the two parties entered into a similar agreement for both power and GoOs.
“We are experiencing an increased demand for green PPAs in the Nordics, where industrial customers increasingly want to document their power consumption as renewable by means of Guarantees of Origin. This agreement confirms Statkraft’s ability to supply such solutions, tailored to customer needs, at competitive terms,” says Statkraft's Executive Vice President for Markets and IT, Hallvard Granheim.
“We are continuously improving our operations and take steps to reach our sustainability targets. Purchasing renewable energy is part of the options that we are implementing. The key solutions that will enable us to meet our ambition of carbon neutrality by 2045 also include switching to renewables for heat and steam generation, electrification of processes, and energy efficiency at our sites”, says Thierry Blomet, SVP Sourcing at Kemira.
