Photovoltaic system

Audi Hungaria has Europe's largest building-based photovoltaic system installed on the top of its two logistics centres. With the green electricity being produced here from renewable sources, the CO2 emission is estimated to be reduced by almost 4,900 tonnes.

As a result of the joint project of Audi Hungaria and E.ON, the solar power system, which has been established on a rooftop area of 160,000 square metres, consisting of over 36,000 solar panels with a total installed capacity of 12 MW, is expected to produce more than 9.5 GWh of electricity per year. This amount of energy corresponds to the annual power demand of 3,800 households.

Sustainability in focus in Audi

Based on recent years' experience, it may be claimed that sustainability is getting more influential in the European approach, and has become a strategic objective for Audi Hungaria. The company's products are getting more environmentally friendly and Audi Hungaria is steadily decreasing its ecological footprint. As of this year the company has reached its 'MISSION:ZERO' objective, and is the second among the AUDI AG manufacturing plants to become climate-neutral. The current photovoltaic park has largely contributed to this achievement.

It is a guideline for Audi Hungaria to strive for sustainability in its operations. In this context, it has made significant progress in cutting back on its energy consumption, carbon-dioxide emission, water consumption and waste disposal. 75 percent of the company's energy supply is now generated from renewable sources, from geothermal energy, and more than 99 percent of the waste generated by the company undergoes recovery processes.
