To reduce its environmental impact and minimize its dependence on the electricity grid, bioMérieux is launching a local initiative at its La Balme site in Isère. The company has installed 5,300 square meters of photovoltaic shade on its parking lots, with an installed capacity of 1 MWp, the highest authorized capacity. In 2020, this was the largest photovoltaic shade structure project in France.
The photovoltaic panels allow the La Balme site to:
- Produce electricity from renewable sources, which will then be used by the bioMérieux site
Produce 20% of the site's energy for self-consumption
