Aug 18 (Renewables Now) - Lithuanian renewable energy company Renerga plans to boost wind power generation at home and expand on the international renewables market, local daily Lietuvos Zinios said on Thursday, citing the company’s CEO.
Renerga, controlled by local industrial concern Achema Group, is considering options to grow its business outside Lithuania, CEO Mindaugas Juodis told the newspaper, adding that the company is also interested in other types of renewable energy projects. The expansion is part of Renerga’s long-term goals.
The Lithuanian firm’s wind portfolio includes the Benaiciai and Benaiciai -1 wind farms in northwestern Lithuania with a combined capacity of 50 MW, a 7.2-MW park in Anyksciai district, as well as a 6-kW pilot low-wind facility. The company also owns hydropower plants and a 1-MW solar array within the Benaiciai wind farm in Anyksciai district, according to its website.
Lithuania is committed to at least 23% share of renewables in its total energy consumption by 2020.
