Enel locks 10-year wind, solar PPA with Heineken Mexico

The Mexican subsidiaries of Italy’s Enel SpA (BIT:ENEL) and Dutch beer maker Heineken NV (AMS:HEIA) have signed a ten-year power purchase agreement (PPA), Enel Energia Mexico (EEM) said last week.

Under the contract, Heineken Mexico will be getting 28.8 GWh of green power each year for its operations at its brewery in Meoqui, Chihuahua. The 100% clean electricity will come from a portfolio of wind and solar projects originating from Enel’s renewables arm Enel Green Power.

Marco Antonio Mascarua Galindo, Heineken Mexico Vice President of Corporate Affairs, stated that the PPA is in line with the company’s plans to reach a 66% renewables share in energy consumption in 2020. By 2030, the beer maker seeks to push the renewables share to 100%.

Enel Green Power Mexico manages more than 2,660 MW of renewables in the country. This capacity is split between 1,303 MW of wind, around 1,308 MW of solar and 53 MW of hydropower. The renewables company is also finalising close to 320 MW of wind projects, Enel Mexico said in a statement.
