World's largest brewer signs 10-year renewable electricity deal

Wednesday, 22 January 2020

AB InBev has inked a deal with energy developer BayWa r.e. to purchase 100% renewable electricity for its European brewing operations. 

BayWa r.e. will fund and develop two new solar sites in Spain, one of which will be called the Budweiser Solar Farm, which will provide 250 gigawatt hours of renewable electricity per year for AB InBev’s breweries.

AB InBev’s European brewing operations produce more than 55 million kegs of beer each year and around 5 million bottles of Budweiser each week. The organisation has set a 2025 sustainability goal of purchasing 100% of its electricity from renewable sources.
