100% of electricity used on the Renault Trucks site in Bourg-en-Bresse from renewable sources
Renault Trucks has just received the AlpEnergie 100 certification for its production site at Bourg-en-Bresse, Rhône-Alpes. Presented by GDF-SUEZ, in partnership with ENALP, Renault Trucks’ supplier, the AlpEnergie 100 label means electricity supply from 100% renewable sources, demonstrating the manufacturer’s citizenship approach in favour of sustainable development and renewable energies. In France, only 20 to 30 companies have the “green” electricity label.
Renault Trucks has just received AlpEnergie 100 certification for its Bourg-en-Bresse production site. This guarantees that 100% of electrical energy supplies to the factory are from renewable sources. Presented by GDF-SUEZ at the energies, climate comfort and water trade show (ENEO) which took place in Lyon on February 16th 2011, AlpEnergie 100 includes the TÜV-SÜD label which certifies the 100% renewable origin of energies used. Other Renault Trucks sites are following suit. For the manufacturer’s three other production sites, in Blainville (Basse-Normandie), Limoges (Limousin) and Lyon (Rhône-Alpes), already 25% of electricity supplied is guaranteed by AlpEnergie 25 to be of renewable origin.
This commitment to “green” electricity, by no means mandatory, is part of a practical, voluntary commitment of the French manufacturer in favour of sustainable development, both in terms of the trucks it produces and its Clean Tech and Optifuel solutions, as well as the production processes used.
Furthermore, through this “green” electricity label contract, Renault Trucks is contributing to the “Nature Option Energie” (NOE) fund, which finances research, development and construction in France for new renewable energy sources. To date, only 20 to 30 companies have received AlpEnergie 100 certification in France.
