Partnership with energy providers: Audi funding expansion of renewable energy to increase the number of charging stations in Europe that use green power
- Next step towards the vision of carbon-neutral mobility: Audi funding the expansion of wind and solar farms in Europe
- The Audi-funded projects are expected to feed an additional 5 terawatt hours of green power into the grid by 2025
- First project is a solar park in Germany with RWE starting in 2022
- Oliver Hoffmann, Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development: “We’re working hard to make carbon-neutral mobility possible”
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.
