Enefit Green produced 139.9 GWh of electricity in January, which is 3.4% less than in the same period last year. The production result was mainly influenced by the lower production in Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms.
The average wind speeds in January were 7.1 m/s and 7.4 m/s, respectively in Estonian and Lithuanian wind farms (in January 2022, the measured average wind speeds were 7.7 m/s and 8.6 m/s, respectively).
"Our electricity production volumes are driven a lot by weather. January’s results slightly trailed last year’s results, but were at best level in terms of last 12 months," commented Innar Kaasik, Member of the Management Board and Head of Production at Enefit Green.
The electricity and heat energy production of the cogeneration segment was relatively stable, decreasing by 0.2% and 0.3% respectively compared to the previous year.
Pellet production increased by 7.6% in January 2023 compared to a year earlier to 13.7 thousand tons.
