B InBev beers across Western Europe will be brewed with 100% renewable electricity, following the opening of a 148 MWp solar park near Granada, Spain with partners BayWa r.e. and VERBUND. The solar park was officially opened yesterday evening in an inauguration ceremony attended by local and international stakeholders and guests.
The project is one of the largest cross-border solar energy deals in Europe to date and covers 14 of AB InBev’s breweries in Western Europe and more than 50 brands across 12 countries, including Budweiser. It will play an instrumental role in supporting the brewer’s 2025 Climate Action goal and its ambition to achieve net zero across its full value chain by 2040. The 161-hectare Solar Park Pinos Puente will generate approximately 260 gigawatt hours (GWh) of emission-free electricity per year with a planned total capacity of 147.6 megawatts-peak (MWp).
