This project aims at the production and self-consumption of solar energy on the Verallia site in Mondego, Portugal, through the installation of photovoltaic panels.
The main objective of this project is to reduce CO2 emissions from the electricity consumption of the Mondego production site.
Self-consumption of solar energy produced on site by installing photovoltaic panels on the available surface of the site (> 31,000 m2) on the roof and on the ground: 5.6 MW installed.
Direct emissions generated by the company's activity.
Indirect emissions associated with the company's electricity and heat consumption.
Emissions induced (upstream or downstream) by the company's activities, products and/or services in its value chain.
Carbon sinks creation, (BECCS, CCU/S, …)
Emissions avoided by the activities, products and/or services in charge of the project, or by the financing of emission reduction projects.
Scope 1 -Self-consumption of electricity corresponding to 14% of the consumption of the site
- Quantification : 3115 teqCO2
The installation of the solar panels allows to produce 14% of the total consumption of the Mondego site (in Figueira da Foz, Portugal). The average emission factor of the electricity consumed by the site is reduced by 14% considering that the emission factor of the electricity produced by the solar panels is 0 kgCO2/MWh. The CO2 emission saving represents 3115 tCO2. In 2020, the electricity consumption of the Mondego site (in Figueira da Foz, Portugal) is of the order of 57 MWh. The installation of the solar panels will produce 8.3 MWh. Considering that the emission factor of the Portuguese grid is specify
The project contributes to SDG 9 Industry, Innovation, Infrastructure and SDG 12 Responsible Consumption and Production, by increasing the use of renewable energy.
This on-site photovoltaic panel project is the first one carried out by Verallia.
The goal is now to duplicate it on the various Verallia sites when conditions permit.
This initiative is fully in line with Verallia’s objective of achieving at least 60% of renewable and low-carbon energy in its supplies by 2025.
A local partnership has been initiated through this project.
