In 2023, Statkraft signed a 10-year PPA on Better Energy's Krapkowice solar farm to offtake 20 GWh of renewable energy. Now grid-connected, the solar farm has the capacity to generate 30 GWh of renewable energy annually, equivalent to the green electricity needed to power 14,000 Polish households.

Additionally, Statkraft has a market access agreement for two other Better Energy solar farms, Helenowo and Nidzica, which are already grid-connected and have annual production capacities of 74 GWh and 75 GWh, respectively.

The partnership began in 2021 with a PPA on the Resko solar farm, which has an expected annual production capacity of 40 GWh. Now, the cooperation between the two companies encompasses four solar farms, enabling Statkraft to offtake 150 GWh of green energy from Better Energy solar farms.

“Statkraft is passionate about driving the renewable energy shift across Europe” said Pieter Schipper, Vice President of Northwestern European & US Origination at Statkraft. “We are therefore very happy that we could contribute to the energy transition of Poland together with Better Energy.”

The partnership between Statkraft and Better Energy demonstrates the increasing demand for PPAs in Poland, with companies from various sectors and varying energy needs choosing to purchase renewable energy. Through PPAs sourced from Better Energy, companies of all sizes can secure green energy in the long term, reduce emissions, reach sustainability targets and add momentum to the Polish energy transition.

“The expansion of our comprehensive partnership with Statkraft, one of Europe's largest energy companies, is an important step forward for Better Energy in Poland and great news for the Polish energy transition” added Mikkel Thorup, Director of PPAs at Better Energy. “PPAs are seen as an important tool for increasing renewable energy production in Poland, reducing the country's dependence on fossil fuels, while providing companies with the opportunity to purchase affordable green energy.”
