Partnership with energy providers: Audi funding expansion of renewable energy to increase the number of charging stations in Europe that use green power

The company’s vision is absolutely clear: Audi wants to become a provider of carbon-neutral mobility. To achieve this goal, the company is partnering with energy providers to support the expansion of renewable energy sources. The aim is to work with these different partners to build new wind and solar farms in various European countries by 2025, which together are expected to generate around 5 terawatt hours of additional green power. This corresponds to an installed capacity of about 250 new wind turbines. The aim is for the proportion of electricity generated from renewable sources by the cooperation partners to increase along with the increasing proportion of electric cars. The first project, a solar park in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, is being developed in collaboration with the German utility company RWE. The plant will come on stream in 2022 and is designed for a total capacity of 170 million kilowatt hours. Encompassing nearly 420,000 solar panels, it will be one of the largest independent solar parks in Germany. Further projects are to quickly follow.

Technology
Innovative technologies are the key to a sustainable future. When conducting its development activities, Audi not only relies on its own expertise, but also on strategic collaborations. Our goal is to advance smart green solutions together with our development partners, suppliers, and employees. That is why Audi is a founding partner of the Greentech Festival, an event that offers thought leaders in the fields of climate change mitigation and sustainability a platform to present and discuss their ideas in depth. And that is why we are also committed to greentech at many other levels: from expanding the use of renewable energy for carbon-neutral mobility to processing and recycling mixed automotive plastic waste to monitoring sustainability standards in the supply chain using artificial intelligence. Projects carried out by the Audi Environmental Foundation focus on filters to protect bodies of water from microplastics caused by tire wear and on removing plastic waste from rivers. The Audi think tank came up with the idea of an app that allows users to calculate and reduce their own transport-related carbon footprint. The “Audi TechTalk: Green Technology” will provide a detailed look at individual Audi projects focused on green technology. All the relevant information and press materials can be found here.
