The two stations will produce annually around 5 GWh and reduce carbon emissions by 46.3 tons, providing clean energy for around 1,200 households for the next 20 years.

As part of the company’s Goodyear Better Future corporate responsibility strategy, Goodyear previously outlined goals to reduce its environmental impact and increase its commitment to protect the environment. Goodyear says it is tracking well toward that target, with the photovoltaic power stations projected to add local, green, carbon-free energy into the Luxembourg energy grid beginning in 2022. The photovoltaic stations will expand on Goodyear’s long-standing relationship with Luxembourg’s main energy supplier, Enovos, to produce steam for production at its Luxembourg plant. 

“At Goodyear, we are continuously working to reduce our environmental impact,” said Xavier Fraipont, Goodyear’s vice president for product development in Europe Middle East and Africa. “This project will contribute to the local green and carbon-free energy supply, benefiting the community and helping to protect the environment for years to come.” 

Erik von Scholz, CEO of Enovos Luxembourg, added, “We are delighted to continue our great and longtime collaboration with Goodyear. This project is a prime example of our ambitions to increase our local renewable energy production and provide our customers with high-quality green products for a more sustainable future.”

Luxembourg Minister for Energy Claude Turmes added that he welcomed Goodyear’s announcement, which lines up with the country’s policy of energy transition. “By speeding up this transition, we can not only strengthen our resilience but also our independence from fossil fuel imports,” he stated.
