CEVA Logistics

Inspired by the success of a recent managed lighting project saving 685 tonnes of carbon, CEVA Team at Volkswagen’s Parts logistic centre wanted to do more to reduce the site’s environmental impact. The Team investigated the merits of solar energy, looking to achieve key benefits in terms of reduced electricity cost, carbon footprint reduction, enhanced corporate identity and rental income from a 25 year roof lease.

The installed system consists of 399 photovoltaic solar panels (the size of three tennis courts) – mounted on the south-facing part of the 65,000m2 warehouse roof – and in 2013 produced around 95,000 kWh of renewable electricity that was used directly by the site.
