The Heineken brewery in Massafra, is the largest solar PV project on a beer brewery worldwide. Due to its location in southern Italy, energy production is relatively high. The average irradiation level (simply said, the strength of the solar power) is around 45% higher than it would have had the plant be located in the Netherlands. All the generated electricity is used by the Massafra Heineken brewery. The solar project strongly contributes to Heineken’s emission reduction targets across the value chain. The project is developed in cooperation with Dutch renewable energy supplier SolarAccess.
