Asia Clean Capital and Danone China Food & Beverage join hands to start solar projects



October 17, 2017

Asia Clean Capital (ACC) and Danone China Food & Beverage (Danone) on Oct. 13, 2017 held the grid-connection ceremony for Danone Zhongshan factory's solar project in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province. Party committee member of Xiaolan town, Zhongshan city Li Jiahao, Director of power supply in Xiaolan town, Zhongshan city Li Guoqiang, Operations Vice President of Danone China Food & Beverage Erwin Van Grootel and Asia Clean Capital CEO Thomas Lapham attended the ceremony.

The project is Danone's first solar PV (photovoltaic) project in China and it also marks an important step for ACC in Southern China. ACC invested 100 percent of the system costs and undertook the design, construction, and long-term system maintenance. Electricity from the solar systems will be provided to Danone at competitive rates. Over its lifetime, the system will save approximately 55,000 tons of CO2, which is equivalent to planting over 1.2 million trees1.

"Asia Clean Capital is honored to cooperate with Danone on rooftop solar," said Thomas Lapham, CEO of ACC. "Danone is one of the world's greatest food companies with factories across China and the world. Danone Zhongshan can serve as a springboard to implement solar across these many facilities and make a major positive environmental impact."

Danone is devoted to reducing its carbon footprint and implementing green energy. Operations Vice President of Danone, Erwin Van Grootel said "We are happy to witness the inauguration of Danone China's first solar PV project. In the past, we used green energy indirectly. Now, we generate and use green energy directly. This is an important step for us to reduce carbon emissions, and we have already identified the next factory where we will install solar panels."
