The experience acquired since 1995 on various technologies, developped on Renault manufacturing sites, allowed for an early integration of innovative solutions on new Renault sites.
1) The Tangier site: rewarded during the fifth edition of the Sustainable Energy European awards 2011, organized by the European Union in the "Manufacturing" category. The Tangier site will be a world premiere in terms of manufacturing capacity with 400,000 vehicles a year at 98% zero carbon emissions, thanks to energy provided by a wind park and heating system powered by biomass.
2) France sites : In partnership with Gestamp Solar, Renault launches the world's largest solar energy project in the car industry l'industrie by installing solar panels in its French manufacturing sites. The project will be developped in Douai, Maubeuge, Flins, Batilly, Sandouville and Cléon (ISO 14001 certified since 2000). The panels will cover a total area of 450, 000 metres squared (equalling to 60 football fields), delivering a power of 60 MW (with a yearly consumption of a city of 15 000 inhabitants).
