Ten-Year Contract Air Liquide to Buy Renewable Energy from Shell
Under a ten-year contract signed between both the parties, Air Liquide will purchase 52 gigawatt-hours per year of solar photovoltaic renewable energy from Shell Energy Europe to power its industrial and medical gas production operations in North East Italy.
Paris/France – Air Liquide has signed a ten-year contract with Shell Energy Europe (Seel) for the purchase of renewable energy to power industrial and medical gas production operations in the North East of Italy.
From 2023, and for ten years, Air Liquide will purchase 52 gigawatt-hours per year of solar photovoltaic renewable energy from Shell Energy Europe in Italy. The equivalent solar photovoltaic installed capacity necessary to deliver this quantity is 42 megawatts. The purchase of this renewable energy will allow Air Liquide to cover a large part of the electricity consumption for the production of industrial and medicinal gases in the North East of Italy. The agreement will result in around 24,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions being saved a year, comparable to the emissions generated by around 4,000 households.
