Skoda Auto Switching to Entirely Green Energy at Aurangabad Plant

   Nov 30,2022

Skoda Auto Volkswagen India Private Limited is the German automaker Volkswagen Group's solely owned Indian affiliate.


With the switch of the Volkswagen Group's Aurangabad factory to 100 percent "green" energy, Skoda Auto Volkswagen India (SAVWIPL) has made a substantial advancement toward the Group's goTOzero ambition. Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution awarded the facility its Green Energy Certificate (MSEDCL).

In order to meet 40% of its yearly energy needs, SAVWIPL's Aurangabad Plant commissioned a 980 kWp rooftop solar power facility earlier in 2018. As a result, the plant was better able to use "green" energy.

The SAVWIPL Aurangabad Plant has become the first automotive facility in Aurangabad to receive MSEDCL certification as a Green Energy Plant by substituting renewable energy from MSEDCL for the external energy source.

By switching to "green" energy, the Aurangabad facility will reduce its CO2 emissions by almost 48% annually, according to Skoda Auto Volkswagen India.

According to PiyushArora, managing director and CEO of Skoda Auto Volkswagen India, sustainability is a crucial tenet of the Group's corporate strategy. It serves as the basis for all of our manufacturing procedures as well. In the Volkswagen Group, "goTOzero" is a key strategic project for sustainable mobility and a blueprint for effective climate protection.

We tackle decarbonization holistically, Arora continued, starting with production and continuing through recycling. We are quite happy to have met the goal date and obtained 100% Green Energy Certification for our Aurangabad site.

The Volkswagen Group is set to eliminate emissions of carbon. The Group continually monitors its carbon-neutrality goals throughout the whole global supply chain and product life cycle.

The automaker anticipates a 48% annual CO2 reduction with the switch to green energy. The long-term goal of the VW Group is to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. Speeds ever to your home and workplace. Connect provides rapid internet connectivity so you can do your online work without buffering.
