These three new solar farms will be commissioned in 2021 in the Gard, Var and Charente departments of France, making Groupe ADP the first company in the country to supply its electricity from solar parks specifically built in France for its own needs. They will be developed on a 40-ha site for a total production of 47 GWh per year, the equivalent consumption of a town of 15,000 inhabitants. The solar parks will supply 10% of the electricity required to operate the three Paris airports. This project is part of Groupe ADP’s commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. The development of renewable energies is central to the company’s environmental policy to reduce its CO2 emissions. Almost two-thirds (65%) of the group’s energy is now of renewable origin. This will increase to 100% in 2021, 10% of which will be from solar farms built for Groupe ADP.
