Coca-Cola Hellenic has been recognised as a leader in energy efficiency, by becoming a finalist at the 12th annual Platts Energy Industry Awards, in New York. This year’s awards attracted over 200 entries from over 30 countries with Coca-Cola Hellenic the only Greek company represented.

Coca-Cola Hellenic was a finalist alongside extremely stiff competition in the Energy Efficiency Programme of the Year: Commercial End-User category, with entries from major companies such as Tesco, McDonalds, and United States Navy Task Force Energy, with Tesco crowned the eventual winner.

Coca-Cola Hellenic was nominated for its innovative Quad generation combined heat and power (CHP) programme. CHP plants generate power, heating and cooling, recovering the heat energy typically wasted by conventional power plants.

Coca-Cola Hellenic’s ambitious programme commits the company to build 20 CHP facilities by 2015. They are being constructed in partnership with ContourGlobal, a leading international company specialising in the development of efficient energy installations.

As part of its overall carbon reduction programme a number of solar power generation facilities are also being built. These are already operating Italy, with more planned in Greece and Bulgaria in 2011. The total cost of these projects is more than Eur200m and the programme, when complete, will reduce carbon emissions by 25% – over 1.4 million tonnes of CO2 – by 2015, which is ahead of EU targets.
