The planning phase to install solar panels at Hydro’s head office at Vækerø in Vækerø Park has begun. With 1,520 high-efficiency panels, it will be the country’s largest installation at an office building. It is estimated that the solar plant will be able to produce 500,000 kWh per year. Installation of the solar panels will start in June and is expected to be completed in August.Hydro launched its updated sustainability ambitions in December 2021 and has a clear goal of developing renewable energy-based solutions throughout its operations. The project has been supported by the Oslo Climate Agency, which has been an important contributor to the realization of the project. The installation at Vækerø alone accounts for just over 12% of the total effect of all projects that have been approved by the Climate Agency.Vækerø Park is owned by Norsk Hydro’s Pensjonskasse (Norsk Hydro’s pension fund) and is located in Drammensveien in Oslo.
