Saint-Gobain in the US entered into a 12-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Invenergy, a privately held global developer and operator of sustainable energy solutions, for 120 megawatts (MW) of the 250 MW Blooming Grove Wind Farm capacity in McLean County, Illinois, which recently started operations.
This agreement is the largest renewable energy deal to date for Saint-Gobain and is a key milestone in supporting the Group’s target to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. The associated Renewable Energy Certificate System (RECS) represents 40% of the Group’s CO2 emissions from electricity in the US, resulting in a 21% reduction of Saint-Gobain’s overall carbon footprint (scope 1 and 2) in the US.
With this agreement and other ongoing projects, the share of renewable electricity within SaintGobain’s worldwide electricity consumption, will double in 2021, from 18.9% in 2020.
