Britvic Ireland and Flogas Enterprise have announced a new Customer Corporate Power Purchase Agreement (CPPA) that will ensure that Ballygowan, Ireland’s iconic water brand, is produced using 100% renewable electricity harnessed from wind energy.

This is the first Irish-based CPPA of its kind with a drinks brand in Ireland, and will allow Britvic Ireland to fund electricity generation at Sonnagh Old Wind Farm in Moneylea County Galway, producing enough electricity on an annual basis to power their production facility in Newcastle West Co. Limerick and 75% of the company’s total electricity requirements. Newcastle West is the home of Ballygowan Natural Mineral Water, and has the highest level of renewable energy use by any Britvic factory worldwide.

The CPPA builds on the achievement of 72% reduction in direct emissions for Britvic Ireland and is reflective of an ever-increasing focus on sustainability at Britvic Ireland across operations and at executive level. Britvic Ireland has recently appointed Sian Young as Director of Sustainable Business on the Irish Executive Team, and Orlagh Geraghty as Head of Planet, putting Sustainability at the heart of decision making.

Sian Young, Director of Sustainable Business at Britvic Ireland, said: “Ballygowan, Ireland’s iconic water brand, has a long history of harnessing the best of Ireland’s natural resources to deliver sustainable, locally produced, Irish natural mineral water. This new Corporate Power PurchaseAgreement with Flogas Enterprise will produce  renewable electricity for our production facility in Newcastle West, and is a significant development in our long-term strategy to ensure 100% sustainability across Britvic Ireland’s business operations.”

Charlie Bornemann of Flogas Enterprise said: “At Flogas Enterprise, one of our top priorities is to support businesses on their paths to sustainability. We have a proven track record of delivering great value and high quality energy solutions which help organisations become more environmentally conscious, and we are very excited to work with Britvic Ireland and support them cut their energy carbon emissions through this CPPA”.

Flogas Enterprise is the division of the Flogas group that works with industrial and commercial customers and renewable production facilities and is the only electricity supplier in the Irish market bringing CPPA options to customers. Britvic Ireland is a leading soft drinks company, and its portfolio includes iconic Irish brands like Ballygowan, MiWadi, Pepsi, Club and TK.
