Solar power for sustainable production
Using the solar power it generates itself, SGL Carbon is taking the next logical step on the way to sustainable production at the site in Ort im Innkreis. The PV system of almost 450 kWp was built and commissioned in cooperation with VERBUND, Austria’s leading energy company.
The company based in the town of Ort im Innkreis in Upper Austria works on the big issues of our times: Sustainable mobility, new energies and cross-sector digitalisation. To this end, composite fibre components for the automotive industry are produced at the location in Ort. These lightweight products for electric vehicles and other systems support the automotive industry in further reducing CO2 emissions. The major future topics require more intelligent, interlinked, efficient and sustainable solutions. The decision to generate green electricity on the roofs of the innovative company was therefore obvious. The solar power from the PV plant results in a reduction of about 30 tonnes of CO2 per year. The electricity flows directly into the processes and almost 100% of it is consumed on site. That makes production even more sustainable and has a positive effect on the energy balance.
