Denmark: Arla – electricity supplied by solar parks

In Denmark the dairy cooperative Arla has announced a collaboration with the renewable energy company Better Energy regarding four new solar parks that will cover about one third of Arla’s electricity consumption in Denmark. The first solar park is expected to start delivering electricity by early 2023, and all four parks are scheduled to supply electricity by early 2024. Better Energy is responsible for the construction, operation, and maintenance of the solar parks, which take up a total of 280 hectares of land. The parks have an expected capacity of 250 GWh, corresponding to the annual energy consumption of 156000 average Danish citizens. Under a 10-year agreement Arla commits to purchase the majority of the electricity from the new solar parks. This constitutes the largest supply agreement in Danish history on renewable energy without any public funding involved.
