Jaguar Land Rover has been and remains committed to a cleaner future by focusing on renewable energy.
Recently, Jaguar Land Rover has come into an agreement with EDF Energy to only purchase electricity from renewable sources. This agreement goes until 2020.
The electricity supply is backed by Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin, which means a portion of EDF Energy’s renewable energy is ear-marked specifically for Jaguar Land Rover. Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin certifies that the portion of the electricity supply comes from renewable generation. 100% for Jaguar Land Rover.
“Our future is low-carbon, clean, and efficient,” Ian Harnett, Executive Director of Human Resources and Global Purchasing, Jaguar Land Rover, said. “Our program to recuse our burden on the National Grid doesn’t end here: we seek continual improvements, both in how we can reduce energy consumption further and how to minis our carbon emissions. Our aim is to give our customers as assurance that the company’s electricity will come from renewable sources: those being in addition to the solar array at our Engine Manufacturing Center in Wolverhampton, one of the largest rooftop installations in Europe.”
Jaguar Land Rover continues to research and develop more sustainable powertrains by investing more than $3 billon. They are working to develop electric, hybrid, and conventional powertrains that will leave less of a carbon footprint.
“EDF Energy is pleased to announce that we will continue to supply Jaguar Land Rover with 100% renewable electricity for the next three years,” Beatrice Bigois, Managing Director of Customers, EDF Energy. “Jaguar Land Rover is a valued partner of EDF Energy – we share a strong focus on sustainability and are very proud to support Britain’s biggest car maker in achieving their low-carbon ambitions.”
