Statkraft, Europe’s biggest renewable energy producer, has signed two long-term PPAs with ALPLA. ALPLA is a global packaging manufacturer.


Under the terms of the PPAs, Statkraft will supply 76 GWh of wind and solar energy every year for 10 years. The PPAs solidify Statkraft’s market position and increase its customer base, particularly within the packaging industry.


Statkraft’s renewable energy portfolio has six solar parks and one wind farm. It achieves a consistent and stable feed-in profile by combining solar and wind power, effectively meeting the real-time electricity demand. The installed capacity of solar parks in Bavaria is approximately 40 MW, while the wind farm in Schleswig-Holstein has an installed capacity of 16.8 MW.


Receiving 760 GWh of green electricity between 2024 and 2033 will enable ALPLA to convert approximately 100,000 tonnes of plastic into sustainable packaging solutions. Additionally, ALPLA will benefit from long-term protection against fluctuating electricity prices.

Since 2022, ALPLA has been committed to significantly reducing its CO2 footprint and energy consumption within its operations, aligning itself to the global objective of capping global warming to 1.5 °C. Procuring renewable energies is a significant step by ALPLA in this direction.

The PPAs will help reduce the emission of approximately 32,000 tonnes of CO2 — the same amount that’s generated from 21,000 direct flights between San Francisco and Frankfurt.

Patrick Koch, Head of Origination in Germany, said, “The combination of selected plants and generation technologies from our portfolio allows us to offer tailor-made PPA solutions also for the energy-intensive packaging sector. Against the backdrop of volatile electricity prices, we are delighted to be able to offer ALPLA long-term planning options with this PPA. In this way, ALPLA and Statkraft are demonstrating how PPAs can succeed in the packaging sector.”

Georg Pescher, Managing Director of ALPLA Germany, added, “With the conclusion of the Statkraft PPAs, we are expanding our renewable energy portfolio, which will enable us to cover more than 70% of the energy consumption of our sites in Germany with renewable energies from 2024 onwards and will also contribute to the expansion of renewable energy capacity in Germany. This approach is perfectly in line with our philosophy of being a reliable and trustworthy partner for sustainable packaging.”
