Green Genius has formed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Svyturys-Utenos Alus (SUA), a Lithuanian brewer that is part of the Carlsberg Group.
In this energy-as-a-service PPA, Green Genius will develop, construct, commission, and operate two solar-plus-storage systems in Lithuania.
These systems will supply renewable energy to the SUA brewery, fulfilling its entire annual electricity demand with carbon-free power.
The PPA is directly associated with Green Genius’s InnoSolveGreen project, which has recently gained recognition from the European Climate, Infrastructure, and Environment Executive Agency (CINEA) under the Innovation Fund Small Scale Call 2021.
The total value of the project is €7.5 million, with €2.6 million being funded by the European Union Emissions Trading System – Innovation Fund, and the remaining costs covered by Green Genius.
The InnoSolveGreen project entails the installation and commissioning of two photovoltaic (PV)-plus-storage systems.
The first system will be set up at the SUA brewery in Utena city, Lithuania, by May 2024. The second system will be implemented at a new utility-scale site near Butrimonys town, Lithuania, and will commence operations by January 2025.
As part of the project, Green Genius plans to install an additional 1.5MW solar system on the brewery’s remaining rooftops, maximizing on-site solar capacity.
To accommodate this expansion, a 2MWh battery energy storage system will be deployed to efficiently meet the brewery’s electricity demands.
Furthermore, a new 5MW off-site utility-scale solar PV plant will be developed near Butrimonys town, Lithuania, complementing the on-site solar capacity.
The Butrimonys plant will showcase cutting-edge solar PV technology and feature a 4MWh battery energy storage system integrated in a novel DC-and-AC connected configuration.
This configuration aims to demonstrate how renewables can be integrated into electrical grids with limited capacity and enhance the flexibility of the asset.
