Nissan Sunderland are continuing their efforts to aid the green revolution as they work to fulfil their plans to become carbon neutral by 2050. Following this agenda, the plant have recently announced their request to have a further 37,000 solar panels installed by local sustainable energy company Engenera Renewables.

The panels will be pivotal in ensuring Nissan achieve their ambition of electrifying all vehicles they manufacture by 2030, enabling them to build every single zero-emission Nissan Leaf sold across Europe.

This would also act as the second phase of Nissan’s decarbonisation plans, involving solar car ports, EV charging stations and a range of renewable heat solutions, as Engenera Renewables are set to operate the expanded solar array for a total of 40 years.
