Two enterprises will supply 40% of the company’s electricity.
The automaker will begin operating a sizable wind farm in the Baltic Sea as of 2027 under a contract it will sign with an energy provider. It also has plans to construct a wind farm at its test facility in northern Germany.
According to Ola Kallenius, CEO of Mercedes-Benz, “These two projects alone will meet 40% of our electricity needs in the medium to long term.”
