Focusing on long-term sustainable investments through innovation, internationalization and operational excellence, we intend to make our properties more ‘green’ and more sustainable. We not only enable our customers and tenants to make their activities energy positive, we also contribute to the environment by decreasing the CO2 emission. Heylen’s ambition is to invest in renewable energy, thereby creating added value for its customers.
At Heylen Group, we believe that we can create more value for our customers by investing in green and sustainable solutions. Within real estate we invest in PV installations and provide green energy to our lessees or users, thereby reducing the carbon footprint of our customers. By investing in green energy, we’re making sure that we can guarantee our businesses being future-proof.
Most Powerful Solar Roof In The World
With a size of 12,6 hectares (20 soccer fields) and with 48.040 solar panels, the Most Powerful Solar Roof In The world lays on the roof of the Heylen Warehouses VE Commerce Campus in Venlo, the Netherlands. With a capacity of 18 Megawatt peak this solar project, that was constructed by a joint venture between Heylen Warehouses and AG Real Estate, produces an equivalent to the power consumption of 4.500 households.
This project is part of Heylen Group’s ambition to invest in renewable energy, thereby creating added value for our customers renting logistic warehouses. The installation provides green electricity, not only to neutralize the carbon footprint for on-site activities but also for activities on other locations, such as flag stores, headquarters and other distribution centers of our customers.
By making our properties more ‘green’ and more sustainable, we do not only enable our customers and tenants to make their activities energy positive, we also contribute to the environment by decreasing the CO2 emission. With the “world’s most powerful sunroof” about 12.000 ton of CO2 is saved a year.
