Anheuser-Busch InBev is going to be powered by 100% solar.
World’s largest brewer adopts solar
Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) is the world’s largest brewer. And the Leuven, Belgium-based company has announced that they are partnering with German renewables company BayWa r.e. in a record corporate solar power deal.
As Forbes reports, AB InBev, who brews Budweiser and other popular beer brands such as Corona and Stella Artois, “will buy 100% renewable electricity for its operations and will see power supplied from two solar farms with a combined output of almost 200 MW.”
Covering AB InBev’s 14 breweries in Western Europe and over 50 brands more, such as Budweiser, this represents the largest Pan-European corporate solar power deal in history.
This commitment will make AB InBev the largest corporate buyer of renewable electricity in the consumer goods industry, involving its operations across the UK, Russia, Mexico, the US, Australia, China, and India.
The new solar plants are expected to be running by March 2022.
