Ecolab Inc. announced the successful sourcing of enough clean electricity to power 100% of its European operations, thanks to the completion of a windfarm project with the global renewable energy company, Low Carbon. In 2022, Ecolab and Low Carbon entered into an agreement to develop the Mörknässkogen windfarm, located on the west coast of Finland near the city of Vaasa. Now, the windfarm has reached full commercial operation, and its 30MW capacity will generate approximately 100GWh of electricity annually.

That?s enough to power 30,000 homes and avoid 20,000 tonnes of CO2e per year. By sourcing the power produced by the windfarm, Ecolab will cover 100% of the electricity used across all its European sites, including 15 major offices, 26 manufacturing facilities and seven RD&E centers. This achievement elevates the company?s global renewable electricity sourcing level to 80%, marking a significant stride in Ecolab?s journey to achieving 100% renewable electricity globally by 2030, a key component of Ecolab?s 2030 Impact Goals.
