• G-Park Zevenaar is one of the largest rooftop PV installations in Europe.
  • The development saves approx. 5,000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

Following the completion of G-Park Zevenaar, one of Europe’s largest renewable energy installations announced on 6th July 2023, GLP today announces that GLP Clean Energy has signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) at the site. The agreement, with Fastned, the European fast charging company, was managed through leading independent energy operator Scholt Energy.

Under the terms of the agreement, Fastned will use all renewable electricity produced by this installation for its fast charging stations in the Netherlands.

G-Park Zevenaar is a large logistics park incorporating a major roof-mounted solar PV project located in the Netherlands with a total installed capacity of 16.2MWp. It saves approx. 5,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum at the current level of carbon intensity in the Dutch electricity grid. Over the total lifetime of the plant, this corresponds to approx. 80k tonnes or 150k equivalent trees.

To support the energy transition, GLP seeks to offer renewable energy solutions across its global real estate portfolio, including on site solar, potentially/eventually coupled with battery storage and depot charging for electric vehicles.

GLP Clean Energy continues to make rapid progress in the development of its renewable energy offering and is currently in advanced stages of completing renewable energy projects totalling ~60 MW across Europe with the ambition of delivering 500 MW in the future.

Stefano Fissolo, Senior Director of GLP Clean Energy for Europe, said: “The signing of this PPA agreement with Fastned closely follows our recent PPA announcements in the Netherlands and Spain, building further momentum in our clean energy initiative and in particular in our rooftop PV programme on logistics buildings. This new agreement is particularly pleasing as our renewable power will not only support Fastned directly, but also their many customers helping to drive a wider societal transition towards a more sustainable future”.

Michiel Langezaal, co-founder and CEO of Fastned commented: “For Fastned, it is important that we can provide our customers with sufficient sustainably generated power at a stable price today and in the future. As the number of electric vehicles on the road grows, so does the demand for fast charging. This agreement helps to bring supply and demand together. This long-term agreement assures the solar park developer of the purchase of all generated power. This, in turn, enables them to develop new sustainable energy projects. This partnership contributes to a more sustainable future and helps us accelerate the transition to electric driving.”
