VERBUND Solar Park Pinos Puente opens in major milestone for the energy transition
The VERBUND Pinos Puente Solar Park near Granada in southern Spain is another milestone on the road towards energy-transformation. On an area of 161 hectares, solar electricity is generated for climate-friendly brewed beer. The project is one of the largest cross-border solar energy deals in Europe to date: the solar park was developed by BayWa r.e, is operated by VERBUND and generates green electricity for the world’s leading brewer AB InBev. AB InBev beers across Western Europe will be brewed with 100% renewable electricity, following opening of 148 MWp solar park near Granada, with partners BayWa r.e. and VERBUND.
Erik Novaes, Vice-President Procurement & Sustainability Europe, AB InBev said: “With a global energy crisis and the growing impact of climate change keenly felt across much of Europe this Summer, we are focused to be building climate resilience and driving forward our push towards decarbonisation.”
