Shimizu uses renewables for all electricity used at Head Office in Tokyo

This is part of the company's measures to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from its facilities. The switch is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by about 1,900 tons, which is equivalent to about 60% of the annual CO2 emissions from the head office building and about 10% of the total annual emissions from all of the company's permanent business facilities. In the future, the company will gradually introduce green power to other company facilities as well.

The electricity used in the head office building is covered by two types of power: the solar power and electricity purchased from a retailer. The PV panels on the exterior walls of the building generate 84.7 megawatt hours of electricity per year, which is consumed by the company for lighting during the daytime. By converting the remaining commercial power supply to renewable energy, the company will be able to make all of its power use carbon-free.

Shimizu has introduced the power supply plan called "Aqua Premium" plans offered by TEPCO Energy Partner, which uses only hydroelectric power generation, which emits no CO2, as its power source. The head office building will switch its entire annual commercial power consumption of approximately 3.9 gigawatt-hours to electricity supplied by the plan.

In the environmental strategy announced in June, Shimizu Corporation has set a goal of reducing CO2 emissions from its workplaces and facilities to virtually zero by 2050. (2021/07/30)
