The next logical stage was to generate our own power from renewable sources of energy.
Simultaneously in March 2004, we decided to acquire our power needs in the form of clean energy supplied by Greenpeace Energy eG.
The next logical stage was to generate our own power from renewable sources of energy. We initiated the relevant project in late 2007 and commissioned our own photovoltaic system. Since December 2007, we have been generating clean electricity from solar energy using our then approx. 800 m² roof top-mounted PV panels that employ thin film solar cells and a triple-junction technique. Thanks to the extension of our premises, we had been able to increase the surface area of our PV system by a further 200 m² up to now approx. 1,000 m² in 2012.
Since early 2012, we have also been using the gas supplied by Greenpeace Energy eG, trusting that this means we are encouraging the development of a sustainable technology that permits to cover the heating needs of our society.
