Estonian Eesti Energia will supply Port of Tallinn with 10 GWh of renewable electricity during 2021

Tallinn, March 15 - Neftegaz.RU. The Estonian port has entered into a renewable energy purchase agreement with Eesti Energia and now consumes only green electricity that's produced in the country.

According to the deal, Eesti Energia will supply the Port of Tallinn with 10 GWh of renewable electricity during 2021 for the port's own use.
As a result, emitting almost 7,000t of CO2/year will be avoided.

Ellen Kaasik, Head of the Port of Tallinn's Quality and Environmental Management Department, said:
  • Energy efficiency and greater use of renewable energy sources are an important step in reducing the port's ecological footprint and achieving climate neutrality
Last year, the 1st Estonian ABB shore power equipment was installed on the Old City Harbour quay as part of an important project, the introduction of which brought cleaner air and less noise to Tallinn, thus reducing CO2 emissions per passenger ship by 100 tons in a month.

Dajana Tiitsaar, Estonian Market Manager at Eesti Energia, underlined:
  • Port of Tallinn is a progressive and responsible company, which is an example for many major companies with its consistent activities
  • We are pleased to see that they have taken the next step towards a cleaner future

Concluding, the biggest port authority in Estonia, Port of Tallinn has taken great steps in recent years to move towards a more sustainable living environment, such as:
  • the construction of environmentally friendly buildings
  • reduction of port fees for eco-friendly ships
  • implementing economically efficient hybrid solutions in passenger ferry traffic between the mainland and the island
Eesti Energia produces electricity and heat from wind, water, biomass, solar power and municipal waste.
The company produced 1.5 TWh of renewable electricity in 2020, accounting for 40% of its total electricity production.
Eesti Energia’s CO2 emissions have fallen 3-fold since 2018.
