A 266 kWp photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of the SES MARIANDL shopping mall in Krems in 2022. This generates around 267,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of eco-friendly solar power to meet the centre’s own requirements, saving 64 tons of CO2 a year.* MARIANDL itself consumes around 90 per cent of the solar power generated, and the excess energy is fed into the national grid. SES, the company operating MARIANDL, has for years relied on generating its own electricity and uses its own hydropower station and photovoltaic panels for this.
