Metal recycling is an active contribution to climate protection and raw material security. With the largest PV roof system in NRW, we are setting the course for a forward-looking energy supply at our site in Ennepetal. From 2024 we will be bringing the power of the sun into our homes or onto our roofs: Around 22,770 solar modules will be installed on a total of 42 of our plant roofs in Ennepetal.
From 2024, solar energy will supply around 8,200,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per year. The 43,772 square meter photovoltaic roof system will have an output of an impressive 9.22 MWp. This will make it one of the largest rooftop systems in Germany.
To optimize self-consumption, a battery storage system with a capacity of more than 2Mwh will be installed in parallel. This investment is a clear commitment to the Ennepetal site as well as to a climate-neutral recycling economy.
