Lamborghini first in Europe for its trigeneration and district heating systems
Automobili Lamborghini together with CPL Concordia have been selected as a winner of the "COGEN Europe Recognition Award 2019" for the Market Development for Organizations category.
«Environmental commitment is an integral part of our strategy, and we subscribe to a strong undertaking of environmental responsibility towards our stakeholders and the area where the company operates. We are very proud to have obtained this important recognition for our trigeneration plant and district heating as they have contributed to achieve our CO2 neutral certification in 2015, as the first company in the world, through the DNV GL Carbon Neutrality program» comments Ranieri Niccoli, Chief Manufacturing Officer of Automobili Lamborghini.
The trigeneration and district heating systems have been developed in collaboration with CPL Concordia and are located inside the Sant'Agata Bolognese factory and produce electricity, heating and cooling using natural gas. Their installed power is 2,4 MW and every year they generate about 20.000 MWhe.
By way of example, the amount of energy generated could meet the yearly needs of all homes in Sant'Agata Bolognese. The two trigeneration plants Savings in terms of emissions will total approximately 1.640 tons of CO2 every year.
The system can be converted to run on biogas in the future in order to reduce the CO2 emissions even further, by up to 11.400 tons every year.
