In cooperation with PKA’s energy fund, SustainSolutions, Copenhagen ZOO has installed high-performance solar systems using Q.PEAK DUO solar modules from Hanwha Q CELLS atop the zoo's farm buildings. The arrays help to avoid around 170 tons of CO2 emissions annually and thus achieve the zoo's ambitious climate goals. Copenhagen ZOO has entered into a cooperation agreement with Pensionskassernes Administration A/S (PKA)’s energy fund, SustainSolutions, and Solcellekonsulenten A/S (wholesaler) in order to enable an annual energy saving of 20%, as well as 6 million liters of water and 170 tons of CO2 emissions for the operation of the zoo. Solar energy plays a key role in this, as the biggest effect for Copenhagen ZOO is the installation of photovoltaic systems on the roofs of 12 buildings located in the zoo's gardens.

The solar systems have a capacity of 273 kWp, and Hanwha Q CELLS’ Q.PEAK DUO BLK-G5 with an output of 300 Wp and Q.PEAK DUO-G5 with that of 325 Wp are delivering clean energy from the sun, starting from the completion of the project on July 1st. The Copenhagen ZOO exclusively consumes the solar power itself. In this way, the zoo not only reduces its energy costs, but also effectively and sustainably improves its environmental balance.

Copenhagen ZOO in Frederiksberg looks back on 160 years of history and is home to more than 3,500 animals and 240 species. Founded in 1859, it is Denmark's oldest zoo and one of the oldest zoos in Europe. It is a magnet for visitors to Copenhagen, attracting over a million visitors from home and abroad every year.
