Use of renewable energies
Over 80% of the energy used at Pfaffenhofen HQ comes from renewable energy sources. Since 2001, the entire heating, hot water and steam demands in the HiPP factory have been covered climate-neutrally by the use of biomass (wood chips). The electricity used comes from 100% CO2-neutral “green electricity” from hydroelectric power plants – without nuclear power. Since 2000, 6 solar projects have been built, which produce a total of 52,800 kWh/a from solar energy on a collector surface of 436 m². All organic waste goes to agricultural biogas plants. Every year, 2 million kWh of electricity is generated in this way.
