Daimler sources electricity from wind farms no longer eligible for feed-in tariffs

Clean Energy Wire

The production of all Mercedes cars in Germany will run on CO2-free energy by 2022, according to parent company Daimler. The carmaker said it was “the first major industrial company” to source electricity from German wind farms whose feed-in tariffs expire after 2020. Daimler said a corresponding power purchase agreement with Europe’s largest renewable operator, Norwegian Statkraft, marked a “new era for renewable energies in Germany” and “ensures the continued operation of six community-owned wind farms” with a total of 31 turbines.
