Installation of more than 20,000 solar panels in the various Super Bock Group units will generate more than 16,000 MWh/year.

The Super Bock Group joined the Greenvolt Group, through Greenvolt Comunidades, to create six renewable energy communities in the North and Center of the country.

In yet another step in the implementation of its commitment to decarbonise by 2030, the largest Portuguese company of refreshing drinks will install more than 20,000 solar panels in six of its units that will allow it to reduce its own energy needs and, at the same time, share the surplus with companies and individuals in the surrounding communities, within a radius of 4 km.

In what is one of the largest solar energy projects in a brewing industry, the photovoltaic solar panels will occupy an area of ​​more than 60,000 m2 and will have a global installed capacity of around 11,000 kWp, allowing the production of more than 16,000 MWh of clean energy annually.
