With German holding company E.ON’s help, Audi plans to construct what will become Europe’s largest rooftop solar PV system installed on a building at their Hungarian plant in Győr.
As part of their recent joint venture with E.ON, Audi will be providing the roof areas of two logistics centers, each with about 80,000 square meters, for the construction of the solar photovoltaic park. E.ON will reportedly be responsible for launching and operating the park once the project begins. The park, which will consist of approximately 35,000 solar cells, will boast an annual output of over 9.5 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity, effectively reducing carbon emissions by 6,000 tons.
Achim Heinfling, Chairman of the Board of Management of AUDI HUNGARIA Zrt., commented on the recent announcement, stating:
E.ON Board Member Karsten Wildberger added:
The German automaker was quick to point out that their recent partnership with E.ON would not be the only step made in their transition towards more sustainable forms of energy. According to Rüdiger Recknagel, Head of Environmental Protection at AUDI AG.:
Audi intends to make all of their production sites climate neutral through the use of renewable energies by 2030.
