Kompania Piwowarska, owned by Asahi Breweries Europe Group, operates three breweries in Poland and will procure the electricity for them in phases from 2020 to 2029, according to Oslo-headquartered energy analysis site Montel News.

Innogy said on November 5 that, in the first year of the contract, it will supply 30 GWh per year from 73 MW of Nowy Staw’s present capacity. This amount of electricity will cover around 40% of the breweriesʼ power needs.

The annual supply will increase to 80 GWh starting in 2021, when Innogy plans to bring online an 11 MW extension to Nowy Staw, Montel News added.
