Energetica awarded as Top Business Model 2020
The leading industry publication – pv magazine – has awarded Energetica Industries GmbH for its unique business approach to sustainability and Co2 reduction.
According to pv magazine Energetica consistently focuses on sustainability as the leitmotif of entrepreneurial trade and, as a company, is always looking for new ways to reduce CO2 emissions. An expert jury therefore awarded Energetica’s overall concept the title “pv magazine highlight top business model”.
And Energetica can rightly be proud of the new location! Production is completely climate-neutral. Energetica’s unique concept saves around 2.700 tonnes of Co2 annually. To achieve this, Energetica draws around 400,000 kWh of electricity annually from an adjacent hydropower plant and around three million KWh from a photovoltaic system with a capacity of 2.6 MW, which was installed on the roof and in the surrounding area of the production hall.
Energetica only uses modules that were produced at the Liebenfels location.
The solar and the hydropower plant cover 100% electricity demand of Energetica production site for day and night shifts. Green electricity is only bought in during the night.
Energetica relies on sustainable solutions for mobility and freight transport. 70% of the goods are delivered by train. The entire vehicle fleet consists of Tesla electric vehicles. And there is a separate connection to the Austrian rail network right at the factory gates.
For Energetica, sustainability doesn’t stop at your own doorstep. The company has developed a patented solution for packaging its modules – e.STAK – which eliminates the need for corner packs. The film that is wrapped around the pallets is also made of biodegradable plastic.
Energetica doesn’t only produce solar modules to contribute to the effort in the transition to clean energy. In everything it does, it makes sure that the best solution is found to minimize Co2 emissions and to go the extra mile in creating a unique sustainable business concept.
