Air Liquide has signed a ten-year contract with Shell Energy Europe Limited for the purchase of renewable energy to supply the production of industrial and medical gases in northeastern Italy.
From 2023, and for ten years, Air Liquide will buy from Shell Energy Europe an annual quantity of 52 gigawatt-hours of renewable energy generated by photovoltaic power plants in Italy. The equivalent installed capacity required to supply this solar energy is 34 megawatts. Purchasing this renewable energy will enable Air Liquide to cover a significant portion of the electricity consumption for the production of industrial and medical gases in the North-East of Italy. This contract will prevent the emission of around 24,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year or the equivalent of the emissions generated by nearly 4,000 households.
“If Ukraine's energy system is ready to take and pay, then (the plant) can run for Ukraine. If (Ukraine) does not accept, then (the plant) will turn to Russia”, declared a Deputy Prime Minister, Marat Khousnoulline.
