Embodied Energy from Production
Embodied energy is the energy used to produce something and then transport it
- Many of our suppliers use renewable power in their processes.
- Renewable energy equipment generates more energy over its lifetime than is used in its production.
To influence our suppliers to support sustainable practices, a questionnaire, asking about their policy on sustainability issues, will be sent out.
The Fronius maxim “Sustainably designed, sustainably made”, means their products are not only created in an especially resource-friendly way but are also designed for superior durability and reparability.
With 100% assembly based in Austria they use 100% electrical energy on site from renewable sources with PV with total output of 2.3 MWp installed at Austrian locations. 81% of all energy consumption - including mobility and maintenance - comes from renewable sources.
With their own 6,070 m² PV systems, Fronius achieved an annual yield of over 588,400 kWh in 2019. This amount of energy would supply around 150 households for a whole year, or alternatively, 4 million km could be covered by an electric car.
