BMW Gets 51% of Electrical Energy Worldwide From Renewables

BMWThe BMW Group says that 51 percent of its electricity worldwide is being supplied from renewable sources.

BMW Group has a step-by-step plan to transition the company to 100 percent electrical energy supply from renewable sources. The first step is to increasingly improve the efficiency of energy consumption at facilities worldwide. In a second step, systems that generate electricity from renewable sources will be installed at individual locations. A third step will see the BMW Group purchasing electricity from renewable sources from energy companies worldwide.

Some 51 percent of the electricity supplied to the BMW Group worldwide is already being drawn from renewable energy sources. For example, in Leipzig, Germany, BMW is using wind power; at the Spartanburg plant in South Carolina, a methane gas system provides around 50 percent of the energy required for production; and at the Rosslyn plant in South Africa, the foundation stone for a combined heat and power unit fired by biogas was laid at the end of 2014.
