Macquarie’s Green Investment Group (GIG) acquired the 42 MW Kisielice onshore wind farm from Impax New Energy Holdings Cooperatief W.A, an entity owned by NEF2, a renewable energy fund managed by Impax Asset Management. Located in Warmiab, Masurian Voivodeship, it is GIG’s first investment in Poland. The project has been fully operational since 2014 and consists of 21 Enercon E82 turbines generating enough renewable electricity to power 45,590 homes per year.
In October 2019, GIG announced that for the next ten years, Signify, the world leader in lighting, will purchase renewable energy for its operations in Poland from the Kisielice onshore wind farm. Signify’s Polish facilities are responsible for more than 25 per cent of its global electricity footprint. The Virtual PPA marks a major milestone in Signify’s commitment to become carbon neutral in 2020: http://greeninvestmentgroup.com/news-and-insights/2019/signify-signs-vppa-with-green-investment-group/
