Rosatom´s NovaWind starts supplying green electricity to Sibanthracite Group

Novosibirsk, October 18 - Neftegaz.RU. Siberian Anthracite signed a 3-year contract with Novosibirskenergosbyt for the purchase of energy generated by NovaWind wind farms in the Stavropol Krai and Adygea.
Electricity generated from renewable energy sources is confirmed by I-REC green certificates.

The company will become the 1st coal mining company in Russia to purchase wind-generated electricity and fully cover energy needs from renewable energy sources.
Thus, it will significantly reduce indirect greenhouse gas emissions.
Green energy supplies will start on January 1, 2022.

Grigory Nazarov, Deputy CEO for Development & International Business of NovaWind, said:
  • NovaWind is consistently implementing the Rosatom strategy for low-carbon energy production based on nuclear and wind power generation
  • Currently, more and more companies are choosing the path to sustainable development and implementing corporate social responsibility strategies in accordance with major international standards
Sergey Melnikov, CEO of Sibanthracite, noted:
  • Switching to renewable green energy is part of the Group's Integrated Carbon Footprint Assessment Program
  • We are proud that Siberian Anthracite is the first coal mining enterprise in our country that will fully cover its needs through renewable energy sources
The company’s transition to renewable electricity with a total consumption of about 56.6 million kWh per year will reduce indirect greenhouse gas emissions from 17.8 thousand tons of CO2 per year to 49.6 thousand tons of CO2 per year.

All investment projects of the company will also be planned taking into account the possibilities of using green energy.
