The international technology group SCHOTT has entered into an agreement with CleanMax Enviro Energy Solutions, the leading C&I renewable energy company for purchasing green energy from a 5.5 MW renewable energy (Wind – Solar hybrid) project in Babra, Gujarat, India.

The green energy will be utilized to run SCHOTT’s operations at its glass tubing factory in Jambusar, Bharuch, Gujarat. This agreement comes under the aegis of SCHOTT’s commitment to becoming climate neutral across its production by 2030. To switch its electricity supply to 100% green energy, SCHOTT is also relying on power purchase agreements (PPAs). PPAs are contracts with operators of renewable energy plants, such as wind or solar farms.
