AstraZeneca Fuels Net-Zero Carbon Future with 15-year Partnership

AstraZeneca | September 15, 2023

AstraZeneca has established a 15-year partnership with Future Biogas. AstraZeneca's collaboration with Future Biogas serves as a blueprint for the commercial adoption of renewable gas in the UK. Operational by early 2025, the biomethane facility will provide 100 GWh of energy annually to AstraZeneca sites in the UK. AstraZeneca is taking significant steps to drive its transition to a net-zero carbon future. The company has forged a 15-year partnership with Future Biogas, marking a milestone in the UK's sustainable energy landscape. This collaboration aims to establish the UK's first industrial-scale, unsubsidized supply of biomethane gas and investments to enhance energy efficiency across its operations, culminating in a total commitment of £100 million. The biomethane facility will become operational in early 2025 and will provide energy to AstraZeneca's sites in Macclesfield, Cambridge, Luton, and Speke with an annual supply of 100 gigawatt hours (GWh). Notably, this partnership is projected to slash emissions by approximately 20,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (CO2e) while adding renewable energy capacity to the national gas grid. The introduction of the anaerobic digestion facility and the long-term alliance with Future Biogas serve as a model for the commercial adoption of renewable gas within the UK. This endeavor will be pivotal in advancing the country's journey toward net-zero emissions by fostering a competitive biomethane market. Furthermore, AstraZeneca is taking measures to support the transition to clean heat in the UK. Notably, substantial energy efficiency improvements are planned for the Macclesfield campus, the UK's largest medicines development and manufacturing site. These enhancements include a major overhaul of the site's combined heat and power plant (CHP), which is expected to save an additional 16,000 tonnes of CO2e annually. Concurrently, the company will upgrade buildings and refine the production and packaging processes for medicines to further reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. These efficiency initiatives will ensure the long-term sustainability of the Macclesfield campus, which plays a vital role in delivering medicines to over 130 countries, totaling more than 90 million packs. AstraZeneca's transition to 100% renewable energy is a central component of its flagship Ambition Zero Carbon program. The program is dedicated to achieving deep decarbonization by cutting the company's entire value chain footprint (Scopes 1 to 3) in half by 2030 and attaining science-based net-zero status by 2045 at the latest. The company is well on track to achieve a remarkable 98% reduction in GHG emissions from its global operations (Scopes 1 and 2) by 2026. The new facility will rely on locally sourced crops as feedstock and actively support farms practicing sustainable land management. This approach will foster the development of a circular agricultural economy, with bioenergy crops cultivated as part of diverse crop rotations, complemented by regenerative agriculture practices that promote nutrient cycling and enhance soil health. Renewable Gas Guarantee of Origin (RGGO) certificates will be transferred to AstraZeneca to avoid double counting of emissions reductions. Moreover, the plant will be equipped with bioenergy carbon capture and storage capability (BECCS), offering the potential for carbon-negative operation. AstraZeneca's aim is to sequester carbon through the 'Northern Lights' project in Norway, a joint venture involving industry stakeholders and supported by the Norwegian Government. This latest commitment to renewable energy in the UK follows other innovative partnerships unveiled earlier this year. In the US, the company is collaborating with Vanguard Renewables to enable the supply of biomethane to all its US sites by the end of 2026. Additionally, AstraZeneca has entered into an agreement with Statkraft, Europe's largest renewable energy producer, to increase the supply of renewable electricity in Sweden.

Mainstream Renewable Power and Ocean Winds partner on second Scotwind floating offshore wind site

PRNewswire | August 18, 2023

Mainstream Renewable Power ("Mainstream"), the global pureplay renewable energy company, and Ocean Winds, the international joint venture between EDPR and ENGIE dedicated to offshore wind energy, have partnered to develop a second ScotWind site of 500 MW east of Shetland, expanding the overall footprint of the Arven Offshore Wind Farm ("Arven") to 2.3 GW. Arven comprises two sites. The first is the 1.8 GW site east of the Shetland Islands which was awarded to the 50:50 joint venture between Mainstream and Ocean Winds as part of the ScotWind leasing process in 2022. Separately, Ocean Winds was awarded a 500 MW site in the same NE1 block. Mainstream has now completed its acquisition of a 50% shareholding in Ocean Wind's holding company and the two sites are now being developed jointly to maximise their potential. Mainstream and Ocean Winds have a longstanding partnership. The companies are currently developing a 1.2 GW floating offshore wind farm in South Korea and are in a consortium for the upcoming Utsira Nord floating offshore wind tender in Norway. By extending this partnership and developing the two sites off Shetland, Mainstream and Ocean Winds will leverage their combined expertise to maximise benefits for Shetland and Scotland, create supply chain opportunities and jobs, whilst contributing to the UK's net zero ambition. The partners have commenced early-stage local engagement, meeting with supply chain partners, local authorities and fisheries representatives. Adam Morrison, UK Country Manager for Ocean Winds, said "The collaboration between Ocean Winds and Mainstream Renewable Power marks a significant milestone, combining our expertise and resources to develop our largest floating offshore wind farm to date. This experienced partnership will capitalise on delivery experience both in Scotland and internationally. "We have already commenced surveys and a programme of early local engagement, including the fishing industry, and we are committed to working closely with the local community in developing this larger Arven project, which will be a significant driver for the energy transition." Tove Røskaft, Head of Offshore Wind for Mainstream, said "Arven offers a unique combination of scale, world-class wind resource and routes to market which enable it to deliver a range of compelling benefits for the good of Shetland, Scotland and the UK. "Mainstream has a solid track record in Scotland and the UK, having successfully developed the Neart na Gaoithe and the Hornsea zone which is the world's largest offshore wind farm in operation. This remains a core offshore wind market for Mainstream and we look forward, together with Ocean Winds, to continuing our engagements with Crown Estate Scotland and other key stakeholders." About Arven Offshore Wind Farm The Arven Offshore Wind Farm ("Arven") is a floating offshore wind project composed of two sites: one 1.8 GW site in the NE1 area east of the Shetland Islands, and another 500 MW site located to the south. Once operational, Arven has the capacity to generate enough energy to power up to two million homes. Arven is being developed by a joint venture between Mainstream Renewable Power and Ocean Winds under a 50:50 joint venture. About Ocean Winds Ocean Winds (OW) is an international company dedicated to offshore wind energy and created as a 50-50 joint venture, owned by EDP Renewables and ENGIE. Based on our belief that offshore wind energy is an essential part of the global energy transition, we develop, finance, build and operate offshore wind farm projects all around the world. About Mainstream Renewable Power Mainstream Renewable Power ("Mainstream") is a leading pure-play renewable energy company with a presence across Europe, Latin America, Africa, and Asia-Pacific, and the company has a global portfolio of 20.8 GW at Q2, 2023.
