[Ferro-Alloys.com]Leading global producer of plasma-derived medicines Grifols and RWE Renewables have signed a 10-year Power Purchase Agreement through which Grifols will buy enough clean electricity to meet 28% of its total yearly electricity needs in Spain.
Under the agreement, Grifols will purchase the entire output of a 21-hectare solar farm that RWE is developing in the southwest of Spain in Las Vaguadas in Badajoz and which could generate as much as 25 gigawatt hours yearly (power capacity of 10MWac), or sufficient green electricity to supply a town of about 21,000 people annually. More than 7,600 tons of CO2 will be saved each year. The solar farm is expected to be operational in the first half of 2022. Until then, Grifols is meeting its green-electricity target through the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates from RWE.
