Estanc’s yearly electricity consumption is about 1.14 GWh. Today we’re proud to say that since February 1st, 2019 AS Estanc uses electricity produced from 100% renewable energy sources.
Supporting the creation of a more sustainable world is our mission statement and strongly intertwined in our strategy. In every spectrum of our business, we are searching possibilities to be more responsible about our approaches that have impact on the environment.
Electricity that has been produced in an environmentally friendly manner
Elektrum Estonia Powered by Green is electricity produced from 100% renewable energy sources with official guarantees of its origin. The origin is granted with a personalized certificate which proves that the energy produced to Estanc comes from Estonian wind farms and hydro power plants. According to Elektrum, in case of a deficit in the future, it will be possible to buy green energy from Europe, because the trading takes place in a common open market.
How does the green energy reach from the producer to Estanc?
In every spring, the independent electricity and gas system operator Elering collects data of consumed electricity in previous calendar year and according to the energy consumed, issues the certificate of its origin. The amount of energy that has been consumed is removed from the energy market and we in Estanc can be sure that the price of the purchased electricity will reach green energy producers and thus contribute to making the world more sustainable.
In 2018-2022 strategy Estanc has set focus onto developing sustainable cooperation with subcontractors
“Estanc AS has stated that we’re looking for partnering opportunities in market state of over-demand to add more value through combined efforts. More specifically we are seeking effective partnerships to help us keep competitive cost level in products that we would otherwise outgrow costwise, be able to help us develop our skillset and also provide wider product range. We’re happy to announce that we’ve started first projects with two companies who are helping Estanc to achieve just that,” says Estanc’s CEO Mihkel Tammo.

In this cooperation, Estanc will focus on buffering our production capacity in case of over-demand on the market and also to stay competitive together costwise.
