The renewable energy subsidiary of the Enel Group in the Central American country ‘Enel Green Power Guatemala (EGPG)’, will supply 17.52GWh/year of sustainable power for two years to McDonald’s Guatemala. With the help of EGPG’s generation mix of hydroelectric power plants, the generated energy will be supplied.
The agreement has been signed between Enel Green Power Guatemala and Cova Energy that allows the renewable energy supply. Cova Energy began operations in the Guatemalan wholesale market in May 2021. It is a trading company created to represent McDonald’s, which is its most representative client in the electricity market.
José Sánchez, Country Manager de Enel Green Power Guatemala, said, “This agreement confirms EGPG as a leading renewable energy partner for large corporate clients, supporting its commitment to the energy transition and the supply of sustainable energy to Guatemalans businesses.”
The amount of energy under this agreement that will be supplied is equivalent to planting 421 thousand trees or avoiding the emission of 16,420 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere annually. This will help McDonalds to fulfil its sustainable commitment to use renewable energy in its operations.
“Enel Green Power Guatemala is the strategic ally we were looking for to launch this project since McDonald’s is a company focused on caring for the environment. Through this alliance we are providing 100% renewable energy to restaurants throughout the year,” said, Edy Gálvez, Country Manager of McDonald’s Guatemala.
Enel Green Power develops and operates renewable energy plants across the world and is present in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania. It is a world leader in clean energy with a total capacity of around 49 GW. Enel Green Power is head of integrating innovative technologies into renewable energy plants.
