Raben Group has signed a seven-year agreement with PGE Obrót for the purchase of green energy (Power Purchase Agreement). Pursuant to the agreement, Raben in Poland will use 100.0% zero-emission energy starting from 2023. Dedicated photovoltaic farms will be built to meet the needs of the logistics operator. The long-term agreement will be in force from 2023 until the end of 2029.
This means that new locations generating green energy will appear on the map of Poland. There will be several dedicated photovoltaic farms with the total area of about 40 ha and the total capacity of about 35 MWp, providing 35,000 MWh of electricity per year – said to be the entire demand for electricity of all Raben facilities in Poland. Construction of the first farm will begin at the beginning of 2022.
Raben has also contracted renewable energy for the period from 2021 to 2022, which aims to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. However, the agreement with PGE signed this year contributes to the creation of new photovoltaic farms on the map of Poland.
The Group has been implementing its Sustainability Strategy, one of the main goals of which is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The recently signed green power purchase agreement (PPA) will look to contribute to this.
