DECEMBER 13, 2018
Mercedes-Benz Cars has entered into a power purchase agreement with Statkraft, Europe’s largest producer of renewable energy, enabling Mercedes-Benz Cars to source electricity directly from wind farms in Germany, whose subsidies from the Renewable Energy Act (EEG) expire after 2020. Norwegian energy provider Statkraft supplies the renewable energy from six community-owned wind farms. From 1 January 2021, the EEG subsidy will run out for about 6,000 German wind power plants.
