NSG Group Opens New Solar Array

Photovoltaic solar panels on the roof of the plant

NSG Group announced that a 750-kilowatt photovoltaic solar system at its Aken facility in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany, opened in May.

More about the new array

The new array owned by Aken, with 1,500 PV modules installed on the open space and on the roof of the plant, will provide 650,000 kilowatt hours, which will be around 10% of the annual consumption of the Aken facility in the future. The electricity generated by the array system on weekends and during periods of shutdown is fed into the public power grid.

Since 2017, all plants and units at NSG Group’s sites in Germany have been powered by 100% green electricity. This investment aims to sustainably reduce energy costs and make a further contribution to the site's climate-neutral production and the group's carbon neutrality goal.

Sustainability goals

Last year, the Science Based Targets initiative certified NSG Group's aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030, compared to 2018 levels. This forms the basis of the business plan to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. This project is a part of NSG Group's solar and energy savings projects.
