Pioneering building planning
Nowadays, environmental protection already starts with the planning of buildings. Wherever STIHL builds in the world, we prioritize environmentally friendly and resource-conserving technology. E.g. the STIHL Sales Center Austria meets the highest standards in technical and ecological terms. With roof gardens, zero consumption of fossil fuels and almost 100 percent green energy, the innovative concept is designed for a maximum reduction in operating costs as well as CO2 -free operation by means of regenerative energy sources. Other STIHL locations operate, among others, combined heat and power plants or wind turbines.
In Stenkullen, Sweden, STIHL Norden has invested 280,000 euros in a new solar energy system. 924 solar panels with a total capacity of 240,000 kilowatt hours were installed on the roof of the newly constructed warehouse. The system went into operation in 2019. During the daytime it generates enough energy to cover the building's own consumption, and exces green electricity is sold regionally. The solar energy system was subsidized in part by the Swedish government.
