ISO 14001 certified since October 2019, Labgroup continues its commitments to the environment by installing a 2,500 m2 photovoltaic installation on the roof of its new building, the “Digital Transition Hub” in Grass.
Reducing its environmental impact while carefully managing a policy that respects its stakeholders has always been a priority for the digital transition expert.
Located in the Western Region Activity Zone (ZARO), the “Digital Transition Hub” now has 1392 solar panels on the roof of the building with a power of 459 kWh. This installation will be able to produce 403 MWh annually, which represents the annual energy consumption of more than 100 single-family homes!
“This ambitious project is perfectly in line with Labgroup’s strategy of using renewable energies to contribute to sustainable development and strengthen its position as a responsible company.”, Bernard Moreau, CEO, Labgroup.
The production of green electricity allows Labgroup to achieve energy autonomy and to develop its activities almost without CO2 emissions. The annual CO2 gain is 180 tonnes, which is equivalent to the emission of 1.5 million kilometres travelled by car, each year!
The construction and operation of these facilities were provided by the company Enerdeal; recognised provider of photovoltaic park installations, which the company builds, finances and manages in Luxembourg, Belgium and Africa. As being a Belgian-Luxembourg company based in Steinfort, it was only natural for Labgroup to turn to Enerdeal for this ambitious project.
The new building, currently under construction in Grass, will be the reference for innovative solutions for secondary storage and digitisation of paper documents. Respect for the environment has been a guideline for the decision-making regarding the design of the building. The main objective was to create a healthy and comfortable building for all employees without negative impact on the climate and the environment. As so, the conception of the building highlights many ecological aspects, and the energy supply is no exception.
The digital transition expert thus contributes to the development of photovoltaic energy in Luxembourg, by supporting the government’s commitments; the National Energy and Climate Plan (pPNEC) project aims to achieve 25% renewable energy by 2030.
