Green power for Gerresheimer: PNE finalises long-term supply contract
Cuxhaven, 28 November 2023 - PNE AG has finalised a long-term power supply contract with the primary packaging manufacturer Gerresheimer. The clean power for the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) is generated by the PNE wind farm in Germany. Gerresheimer AG, a manufacturer of primary glass and plastic packaging for the pharma, biotech and cosmetics industries, is thus securing around 35 gigawatt hours of clean power per year from 2024 at attractive conditions. This will save the environment 18,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year*.
PNE is using this PPA to once again position itself as one of the leading providers of PPAs from its own wind farms and a broker of PPAs as a service for third parties. Based on this further long-term supply agreement, PNE AG is therefore also consolidating its role as a reliable partner for industry while emphasising its position as a Clean Energy Solutions Provider.
"Industrial Companies are increasingly interested in PPAs with higher volumes and longer terms," says Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG. "More and more companies like Gerresheimer are actively shaping their own energy transition. We reliably assist the industry in reducing its CO2 footprint. Companies can use PPAs to secure long-term capacities of clean electricity at attractive conditions in a volatile market environment. We have noticed that industry is increasingly preferring the regional supply of electricity from wind power. Even just a few years ago, this was still electricity from PV systems or even just green electricity certificates from Norway. This is a notable change."
“The power purchase agreement with PNE AG is another important building block in expanding green power as a share of the supply of energy to our German locations,” says Dietmar Siemssen, CEO of Gerresheimer AG. “EcoDesign, green energy, and the use of the latest production technology are the key factors for us in reducing our CO2 emissions by 50 percent by 2030.”
*Calculation basis: Market-based method in accordance with the GHG Protocol Scope 2 Guidance.
