Green energy for Gebrüder Weiss

[ August 17, 2021   //   ]

Gebrüder Weiss says the photovoltaic installation at its Graz site in Austria, commissioned in August 2020, is now generating over 460 megawatt hours of electricity every year, enough to meet around half the energy needs of the 27,000sq m building.

The logistics company already uses solar power at five other locations for lighting, air-conditioning, and charging e-floor conveyors, meeting 10% of the current energy needs of all of its logistics locations in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Gebrüder Weiss plans to equip an additional four branches with solar installations by the end of 2021.
