Scan Global Logistics and Better Energy Extend Partnership with Swedish Power Purchase Agreement

08 May, 2024

Scan Global Logistics has signed a 10-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Better Energy to offtake renewable energy in Sweden. Through the PPA, the global freight forwarder contributes to establishing a new solar park near Studsvik and purchases renewable energy for its Swedish offices and warehouses.

Scan Global Logistics, a global logistics company headquartered in Denmark, is taking new steps toward its sustainability targets and lessening its environmental impact by purchasing renewable energy for its Swedish operations. The global freight forwarder is expanding its renewable energy strategy by entering into a PPA with Better Energy to purchase green energy from a solar park in Sweden. 

“This PPA with Better Energy to source renewable energy for our facilities in Sweden is an important part of our sustainability strategy and allows us to contribute to the green transition,” says Martin Andersen, Global Head of Sustainability & ESG at Scan Global Logistics. “We’re pleased to extend our partnership into Sweden as this will be the second Better Energy solar park from which we’re offtaking renewable energy from.” 

Adding solar energy to the Swedish grid

The PPA contributes to establishing a new 23-hectare solar park near Studsvik in Sweden. With an annual production capacity of 25 GWh of renewable energy, the park will be able to produce enough green electricity to cover the consumption of over 4,000 Swedish homes. By the estimated grid connection in late 2024, the solar park is expected to be among the largest in Sweden.


Partnership expands into Sweden

The PPA on Studsvik builds on the existing partnership between the two companies. In 2022, Scan Global Logistics and 12 other companies entered one of the country’s first multi-partner PPAs with Energi Danmark to offtake renewable energy from Better Energy’s Badskær Solar Park in Denmark. Through the PPA, Scan Global Logistics offtakes renewable energy to supply energy for its 70,600 square meter warehouse and six offices in Jutland.

“It is great to see that our partnership with Scan Global Logistics in Denmark has resulted in welcoming them as a PPA partner in Sweden,” says Mikkel Thorup, Senior Director of Power Purchase Agreements at Better Energy. “The green transition requires companies of all sizes and varying energy requirements to decide to purchase the greenest form of electricity. Whether it is in Denmark, Sweden or any of the markets, we’re striving to offer a practical and attractive solution to our partners.”
