To sunny times in Austria and Germany
Gebrüder Weiss (GW) is banking on solar power. The logistics group has built four new photovoltaic systems in southern Germany and Vorarlberg (Austria) to meet its electricity needs.
The systems have been installed at the logistics terminals in Nuremberg, Esslingen, Aldingen in Germany and Lauterach in Austria, where they will generate a total of around 1,540 megawatt hours (MWh) of energy per year.
"Gebrüder Weiss has set itself the goal of achieving CO2 neutrality by 2030,” Wolfram Senger-Weiss, CEO of GW, was quoted in a press release.
Five more Gebrüder Weiss branches in Austria will be equipped with solar power installations in the second half of this year. This will enable the logistics company to produce up to 8.4 gigawatt hours (GWh) of electricity at 13 locations by the end of 2021 and save around 1,050 t of CO2 per annum. (sh)
