Outcome

Today, the Lüdenscheid factory generates around 14% more energy on-site than it needs. Surplus power is fed through the public grid, contributing sustainably produced energy to the second location’s power supply.

The plant generated 1,190 MWh of climate-neutral solar power in the first year and now saves up to 680 tons of CO₂ per annum, serving as proof that it is possible to reduce carbon emissions all the way to zero and creating a demonstrable blueprint for customers and wider industry.
