AB InBev and BayWa r.e. announce biggest ever Pan-European corporate solar power deal to brew Budweiser with 100% renewable electricity

MUNICH, Jan. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --AB InBev beers, including Budweiser, the world's most valuable beer brand, will soon be brewed with renewable electricity throughout Europe as AB InBev inks a deal with global renewable energy developer, BayWa r.e., to purchase 100% renewable electricity for its European brewing operations.The 10-year Virtual Power Purchase Agreement (VPPA) will see power supplied from two solar farms with a combined power output of almost 200 megawatts, of which AB InBev will be supplied with over 130 megawatts. This makes it the largest Pan-European corporate solar power deal in history, covering AB InBev's 14 breweries in Western Europe and over 50 brands brewed and sold across 12 countries*, including global brand Budweiser. BayWa r.e. will fund and develop two new solar sites in Spain, one of which will be called the Budweiser Solar Farm, which will provide 250 gigawatt hours of renewable electricity per year for AB InBev's breweries. Over the duration of the PPA, this is enough to power the equivalent of almost 670,000 European homes, or 100,000 stadium football matches.AB InBev's European brewing operations produce over 55 million kegs of beer each year and around five million bottles of Budweiser each week.A Budweiser is now AB InBev's biggest brand in Europe, following its launch in France and the Netherlands last year.
