Burgenland Energie signs its first hybrid wind and solar PPA in Austria

Burgenland Energie has partnered with Borealis to sign their first power purchase agreement (PPA). Under this ten-year agreement, renewable electricity will be supplied from a hybrid renewable energy park in Nickelsdorf, Austria, owned by Burgenland Energie’s subsidiaries Nick Alpha and Wind PV Operation.

Starting in January 2026, Burgenland Energie will deliver approximately 70 GWh per year of wind and solar energy to Borealis facilities in Schwechat, Austria. This supply is enough to power around 15,855 households annually, representing a significant step towards sustainable energy practices.

Austria's goal of achieving 100% renewable electricity

With this PPA, Burgenland Energie reinforces its status as a wind power pioneer and the largest wind energy producer in Austria. Simultaneously, the company is advancing its leadership in solar energy by developing wind and solar hybrid parks across the country. This initiative aligns with Burgenland Energie’s ambitious vision to make Burgenland one of the world's first climate-neutral and energy-independent regions through renewable sources, supporting Austria's goal of achieving 100% renewable electricity. This long-term partnership further establishes Burgenland Energie as a green tech solutions provider for companies aiming to decarbonize their operations.

For Borealis, this PPA secures 55% renewable electricity for its Austrian operations, contributing to its objective of sourcing 100% of its electricity for Polyolefins and Base Chemicals business units from renewable sources by the end of the decade. The agreement is expected to reduce annual Scope 2 emissions (indirect greenhouse gas emissions from purchased electricity) by approximately 7,300 metric tons. Over the ten-year period, this equates to a reduction of 73,000 metric tons in Scope 2 emissions, underscoring Borealis' commitment to environmental sustainability.

Sustainable living

Thomas Gangl, Borealis CEO, expressed pride in the significant hybrid Power Purchase Agreement with Burgenland Energie, marking progress towards sourcing all electricity from renewables by 2030. This partnership reflects Borealis' commitment to leading the energy transition and reinventing essentials for sustainable living.

Stephan Sharma, Burgenland Energie CEO, highlighted the partnership's role in addressing climate change collectively. He emphasized the potential of harnessing wind and solar energy from Burgenland's hybrid park to power Borealis, showcasing proactive sustainability efforts and the synergy between innovation and environmental preservation.
