Topdanmark’s solar cells provide plenty of green power

We want to contribute to the green transformation of society. We do this e.g. through our own solar cell installation that produces plenty of CO2 neutral electricity. We have a large installation on the roof of our head office in Ballerup, and a smaller installation at an office in Viby. In 2020, 25% of our power consumption was produced by the two installations.

The first solar cells as early as 2012

Topdanmark was on the leading edge of development and inaugurated the largest roof-based installation in Scandinavia in 2012. It was made up of 3,042 solar cell panels with a capacity of 0.75 mWh. In 2015, the installation was expanded, thus we now have a capacity of nearly 1.5 mWh annually. In addition, we also have a solar cell installation with 432 solar cell panels at our office in Viby.

"Our two solar cell installations have been a success both financially and in regard to the climate. We have saved expenses for electricity and reduced our CO2 emissions by 35% in the period 2012 – 2016 which is a good result. Now, we have expanded our ambition within the climate area, and we aim to be CO2 neutral by 2030 at the latest"
