REX is on the way to climate neutrality

Rex is investing in climate-friendly energy generation with a rooftop photovoltaic system covering over 3550 square meters. It comprises 1800 PV modules and achieves a maximum output of 730 kilowatts-peak (kWp). Based on this, the company expects to produce around 740,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of solar power per year. This achieves a self-sufficiency level of approximately 45 percent, with any surplus being fed back into the grid.

“The installation of the new photovoltaic system is an important component of our sustainability strategy,” says Rex Managing Director Roland Rampf. The rooftop solar park is just one of many measures the company has taken on its journey to climate neutrality. According to Florian Hirsch, Technical Manager, Rex has reduced its electricity consumption by 35 percent and gas consumption by 25 percent over the past three years through various energy-saving measures.

Some of the numerous measures for CO₂ reduction include the gradual replacement of existing machinery with energy-efficient equipment, the transition to LED lighting technology in administration and production, the installation of climate-friendly heating systems in office spaces using heat pump-operated air conditioning units, the heat recovery from compressor systems to heat production halls, and the gradual renewal of the vehicle fleet with electric cars.
