May 15, 2024

On the 14th of May European Energy had the honor to host the Lithuanian Energy Minister Dainius Kreivys on a visit to Kassø Power-to-X facility.

European Energy hosted Lithuanian Energy Minister Dainius Kreivys on May 14th at the Kassø Power-to-X facility in Aabenraa Municipality, Denmark.

The Lithuanian Energy Minister had the opportunity to view the progress of the Kassø PTX facility, which is set to become the first large-scale commercial e-methanol facility to come into operation.

“We are developing solar, wind, storage and e-fuels in Lithuania to further contribute to the energy independence and green transition in the Baltic States. We have a strong pipeline under screening and development in Lithuania,” says Tadeušas Konkovskis, Vice President and Head of Baltics at European Energy.

Today, European Energy operates a total of 383.5 MW of renewable energy projects in Lithuania, with wind farms in Anykščiai, Jonava, Rokiškis and Telšiai municipalities, and a solar farm in Anykščiai Municipality. These projects produce the electricity equivalent to that consumed by 547,000 Lithuanian households. European Energy produced approximately 15 percent of Lithuania’s total electricity in January 2024 through its assets.

“The Lithuanian market is a key market for European Energy. Having the Energy Minister of Lithuania visit the construction site of the first commercial large-scale e-methanol site in the world is important. It allows one of our important stakeholders to witness the wide range of renewable solutions that we as a company have,” says Thorvald Spanggaard, Executive Vice President and Head of Project Development at European Energy.

During the visit to the Power-to-X facility, the Energy Minister of Lithuania and his delegation were given a tour of the facility and had the chance to talk to the municipality of Aabenraa about their experiences with the Power-to-X facility.
