As of 2021, 100% of the electricity needs of the breweries owned by Kompania Piwowarska are covered with wind energy supplied by RWE. Our newly launched wind farm LECH Nowy Staw III is located near the town of Nowy Staw, about 50 km south-east of Gdansk. The LECH Nowy Staw III wind farm, owned and operated by RWE, is comprised of three turbines, which together have a total installed capacity of 12 megawatts (MW) and meets 54% of Kompania Piwowarska’s demand for electricity necessary to brew beer in the Dojlidy Brewery, Lech Browary Wielkopolski and Tyskie Browary Ksiazece, while the remaining 46% is already delivered by the existing wind farms in Nowy Staw.

LECH is one of Kompania Piwowarska’s leading brands, which has been implementing pro-environmental solutions across different areas of its activity and inspiring its consumers to carry out more eco-activities.

“Powering Kompania Piwowarska’s breweries with wind energy significantly reduced the impact of our activity on the natural environment. Thanks to the agreement with RWE, we have lowered CO  emissions from our breweries by 66% compared to 2019, which constitutes a milestone in the execution of our environmental goals specified in the Better Future 2030 strategy, which includes becoming carbon neutral across our breweries by the end of this decade. At the same time, our cooperation with RWE illustrates how we implement the overarching purpose of our company: creating meaningful connections. These are business partnerships based on similar goals and values, bringing benefits not only to the business, but also to the planet and community,” says Igor Tikhonov, CEO of Kompania Piwowarska.

The installation completed at the beginning of this year was built under the PPA concluded in 2019 between Kompania Piwowarska and RWE. The first electricity from the new wind turbines has been supplied since February.
