HEINEKEN Spain announced that through a Power Purchase Agreement signed with energy provider Iberdrola, it will produce all of its products using renewable electricity by 2023.
Iberdrola will provide the solar-generated energy from its Andévalo photovoltaic plant, which the company inaugurated yesterday. The new plant consists of 150,000 photovoltaic panels and will avoid the emission of 15,000 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year. The plant will power HEINEKEN Spain’s four breweries and our offices in Spain
HEINEKEN stated that once its electrical requirements are met, the company will replace its existing gas boilers with biomass ones to be able to brew only with renewable energy by 2023.
Guillaume Duverdier, Managing Director at HEINEKEN Spain, said:
“The sun is the new secret ingredient of the HEINEKEN family beers. Our beers, brewed with the power of the sun, contribute to regenerating the environment by tapping into a source of natural wealth that promises millions of years of zero emissions. And an essential element of the culture, character and warmth of the social life of the Spanish people. Because we all win when we join the fight against climate change: nature wins and the economy wins.”
