BTC d.d., one of the leading commercial property management and development companies in the CEE region, and Resalta signed an agreement for two new solar power plants. As it moves ahead on its journey towards energy transformation, BTC d.d. is going to place two new solar PV plants on two buildings in BTC City. This is a significant step towards a greener future and carbon neutrality.
The solar PV plants will be positioned on the roof of Arena 7 (Dvorana 7) and Water Park Atlantis (Vodno mesto Atlantis). Jointly the plants will produce 455 MWh of green energy and reduce the CO2 emissions by 222 tonnes. BTC now generates electricity from renewable energy sources with three existing solar power plants and cogeneration (CHP), which together produced 1.7 million kWh of green energy in 2021.
Within BTC's sustainable development strategy, energy transformation is an important part of the company's work, which is being carried out through a number of projects and the introduction of continuous improvements in energy management. One of our key objectives is to increase the share of renewable energy sources with the aim of strengthening energy self-sufficiency. The two new solar power plants represent our additional contribution to the green transition and to positioning BTC City Ljubljana as one of the greenest urban centres in Europe,
explains Damjan Kralj, Chief Executive Officer of BTC.
At Resalta we are proud that BTC chose us as a partner on its journey towards the greener future. The two new solar PV plants will make an important contribution to BTC's green objectives, including carbon neutrality,
said Luka Komazec, CEO of Resalta.
