Since the completion of our first solar installation in 2005 at Prologis Park Chanteloup in France, Prologis has since made tremendous strides in developing its renewable energy platform across the globe, in Spain, Germany, North America, and Japan. To date, our projects generate a total of 50 megawatts* of solar energy capacity of solar panels on our rooftops.
In 2009, Prologis has announced the formation of a Renewable Energy group to procure new business, manage installations and provide development management services for renewable energy projects globally.
*As of December 2010
In 2009, Prologis completed its first solar installation at Prologis Park Zama 1 in Japan. Please click here to see a current or daily energy production data.
Prologis contributes in providing renewable energy through leasing the rooftops of our facilities to the utilities that install solar panels. Currently, the local utility companies in California and Oregon are hosting solar panels on our facilities, providing renewable energy to the local community it operates.
Prologis launched its"rooftop photovoltaic test site" in Denver, Colorado, to test solar panel technologies. Being the first real estate company to develop a program dedicated to accelerating the deployment of large-scale solar projects, the test site totals 11 kW DC of power generation capacity from 99 modules. Prologis will utlize the data collected for future renewable energy projects.
Prologis has installed wind turbine generator systems at Prologis Park Centrair and Prologis Park Osaka 2, and the power generated is used for powering air conditioners, street lights, and irrigation landscaping in those facilities.
Prologis is the first real estate company to join the Chicago Climate Exchange, a voluntary program for measuring and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. As an Associate Member, Prologis annually calculates and offsets 100% of its carbon footprint from office operations and business travel globally. In 2010, Prologis selected the Cape May landfill project in New Jersey, the United States.
