Roca Group invests in renewable energy supply for European operations

Roca Group, a manufacturer of bathroom products including tiles, has announced a long-term renewable energy purchase agreement spanning 10 years from 2025 to 2035, tied to the new solar plants Trévago I & II, located in the province of Soria, Spain.

The solar production facilities Trévago I and II are scheduled to begin operations in July 2025 and have a capacity of 86.84 MWp. According to Roca Group, 80% of the facilities’ total capacity will be dedicated to the company, which will provide 120 GWh of clean energy annually, the volume needed to cover the electricity consumption of all group operations in European territory.

The projects are being developed by Bruc Energy, a renewable energy generation company, and the agreement has received legal advice from Baker McKenzie on behalf of Roca Group, and Allen & Overy on behalf of Bruc. Additionally, strategic support has been provided by Schneider Electric through its VPPA advisory services, coordinating the entire process.

This initiative is aimed to result in a reduction of over 50,000 tons per year of CO2 emissions, corresponding to the group’s electricity consumption in Europe. It’s said to mark a “new milestone” in the company’s decarbonisation roadmap, complementing the recent start of operations of the world’s first net-zero sanitary ceramics production plant. The group has already achieved a 39% reduction in its direct CO2 equivalent emissions and a 47% reduction in energy intensity between 2018 and 2022, it says, moving closer to its net-zero ambition by 2045.
