Saint-Gobain signs Romanian energy deal
06 May 2024

Saint-Gobain has signed a five-year renewable electricity supply agreement (power purchase agreement or PPA) in Romania with energy supplier OMV PETROM SA. The contract covers the purchase of green electricity from wind and photovoltaic sources provided by OMV PETROM SA and will start in January 2026. 

OMV PETROM SA will provide around 800GWh of green electricity for a period of five years. This contract, combined with a photovoltaic park currently in the final stage of development at the Ca?la?ras?i glass plant, will cover 100 per cent of Saint-Gobain’s electricity needs in Romania. 

This marks the second PPA signed by Saint-Gobain in Romania and will contribute to the company’s strategy of reducing its carbon footprint in the country in line with the group’s net-zero carbon emissions goal by 2050.
