AB “Ignitis grupė” (hereinafter – the Group) publishes its first three months 2024 interim report, which is attached to this notice, and announces that the Group’s Adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR 181.7 million (+21.2% YoY). Growth was recorded across all business segments, except Reserve Capacities. Customers & Solutions segment electricity B2C activities continued to be loss-making (EUR -8.2 million). The Green Capacities segment remains the largest contributor with a 42.4% share of the Group’s total Adjusted EBITDA.

We increased Investments by 73.4% YoY to EUR 209.5 million. Two thirds of the total Investments were directed towards the Green Capacities segment, and 90.5% to Lithuania. The Investments into Green Capacities have tripled and reached EUR 138.9 million, with the majority directed towards new onshore wind farms.

The Group’s leverage metrics remained strong, with FFO/Net Debt ratio at a solid level of 28.9% (compared to 29.4% as of 31 December 2023).

Business development

In 3M 2024, we increased our Green Capacities Portfolio to 7.4 GW (from 7.1 GW) and Installed Capacity to 1.4 GW (from 1.3 GW). Our Secured Capacity stood at 2.9 GW.

We reached a number of significant milestones in the expansion and development of our Green Capacities Portfolio, including the following:
– we, together with our partner CIP, won the second seabed site (Liivi 1) in the Estonian offshore wind tender and see the site as a natural extension of the Liivi 2 sea area (secured in December 2023);
– Silesia WF I (50 MW) in Poland has reached COD;
– we have secured grid capacity for the first BESS projects (<190 MW) in Lithuania;
– we have submitted a bid in the tender for the second 700 MW Lithuanian offshore wind project. However, due to the limited number of participants, the tender did not convene but is expected to take place in due course, following a review of the tender conditions.

In Networks, the total number of installed smart meters has exceeded 836 thousand.

In Customers & Solutions, we continue to expand the EV charging network in the Baltics, with multiple locations secured for the installation of 67 EV charging points.


Our Green Share of Generation decreased by 15.7 pp to 79.9% YoY due to proportionally higher electricity generation at CCGT (Reserve Capacities).

We reduced our GHG emissions by 60.4% in Scope 2, while our Scope 1 and Scope 3 emissions compared to 3M 2023 increased by 49.4% and 5.5% respectively. Total emissions amounted to 1.61 million t CO2-eq and increased by 12.5% YoY.

Carbon intensity of Scope 1 and 2 GHG emissions decreased by 33.8% YoY to 220 g CO2-eq/kWh due to higher electricity production from renewables and reduction of Scope 2 emissions.

No fatal accidents were recorded, and employee Total Recordable Injury Rate (TRIR) was 0.99, contractor TRIR – 0, both well below the targeted threshold. eNPS remained high at 65.5%.

Shareholder returns and 2024 outlook

In line with our Dividend Policy, a dividend of EUR 0.643 per share, corresponding to EUR 46.5 million, was distributed for H2 2023.

We maintain our full-year 2024 Adjusted EBITDA guidance of EUR 440–470 million and Investments guidance of EUR 850–1,000 million.
