Energy use 2022
The total energy consumption has increased due to the acquisition of Unified Brands, with two large sites in the US. With a recalculated baseline* reduction since 2021 is 2% and since 2015 it is 13%. The decrease in 2022 is mainly due to reduced electricity consumption in Louisville and Shanghai, and reduced natural gas consumption in Rayong and Vallenoncello. Electrolux Professional Group will continue to prioritize energy reduction measures.
We are currently operating with a 37% share of renewable energy. All manufacturing sites in Europe operate with renewable electricity and we are focused on increasing the share of renewable electricity in sites outside of Europe. Solar panels have been installed at our sites in Vallenoncello, Modena and Rayong. We will continue to increase our share of renewable energy.
