In 2020, we partnered with TotalEnergies Renouvelables France (TERF), a leading renewable energy player in France, through its affiliate Total Quadran. This partnership was created with the goal to co-develop and install photovoltaic farms on 11 Lhoist locations in France. Total Quadran will build and operate more than 194,000 solar panels on about 111 hectares of Lhoist grounds. This represents over 83 MW of power, equivalent to 70% of Lhoist’s electricity consumption in France.
In 2022, to continue with our renewable energy strategy, we extended our partnership to the development of onsite b2b solar power plants in Iberia.
Representing a total of 7,40 MWp and more than 14,000 PV panels, the ground-mounted solar systems will be built and operated by TotalEnergies and installed at 3 Iberian Lhoist’s sites in Spain (Navarra, Tiebas and Seville, Estepa) and Portugal (Santarém, Alcadene).
The onsite solar installations will cover almost 30% of the global electricity consumption of Lhoist’s facilities with renewable power produced directly onsite and will reduce CO2 emissions by approximatively 3,600 tons annually.
Committed to continuous improvement and innovation, TotalEnergies will install cleaning robots on the PV panels surface to limit the soiling affectation on the solar generator surface and optimize the performance of the PV systems.
" The long-term vision of its activities is at the heart of the concerns of a family group such as the Lhoist Group. Over the years, our commitment to sustainable development has become a key part of our strategy. This ambitious green energy project in Iberia is in perfect alignment with our efforts to contribute to the transition to carbon neutrality at all levels of the organization and our operations including in Iberia. It is also part of a partnership approach with the players close to our plants, people, local communities, environmental associations, as well as with our customers which will be able to value it in their own carbon footprint.

In line with both companies’ ambition to achieve carbon neutrality, this partnership will enable Lhoist, with the support of TotalEnergies, to reduce the carbon intensity of its products through a self-consumption solution and improve the energy balance of its commercial partners.
