RELEASE: LyondellBasell and Grenergy Sign Five 15-Year Solar Power Purchase Agreements

(Information sent by the signatory company)

They sign contracts to reduce emissions equivalent to the energy consumption of 90,000 homes

ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands, March 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- LyondellBasell and Grenergy have signed five long-term solar power purchase agreements (PPAs). Under the 15-year contracts, the Spanish renewable energy producer will supply solar power from the La Cereal solar farm project, which is expected to be operational by the end of 2025. The deals represent some 329,000 megawatt-hours (MWh) of solar energy annually, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of more than 90,000 European homes.

"With these agreements, LyondellBasell has now reached 70% of our goal of sourcing at least half of our electricity from renewable sources by 2030," commented Willemien Terpstra, LyondellBasell's vice president of decarbonization. "In total, our PPA portfolio will generate more than 2.9 million megawatt hours of renewable electricity and reduce our company's Scope 2 greenhouse gas emissions by more than one million tons."

"This PPA will help optimize the financing of Grenergy's largest project to date in Spain," said David Ruiz de Andrés, CEO of Grenergy. "Its development also reinforces the weight of our European portfolio, which we expect to double from the current 25% to 45% in 2025. A proven structure and the ability to close PPAs is key to maintaining the pace of connections and achieving our strategic objectives."

The 259 megawatt (MW) La Cereal solar park project is part of the Clara Campoamor photovoltaic solar energy project, which Grenergy is developing between the region of Madrid and Castilla La Mancha. The total installed electrical capacity will be approximately 575 MW, and it will become one of the largest photovoltaic parks in Europe.

These agreements demonstrate LyondellBasell's continued progress toward the company's goal of reducing its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions by 42% by 2030 and achieving net zero by 2050.
