Saint-Gobain: renewable electricity agreement signed in Romania

Saint-Gobain has signed a 5-year renewable electricity supply agreement (Power Purchase Agreement or PPA) in Romania with OMV Petrom.

This contract covers the purchase of green electricity from wind and photovoltaic sources provided by OMV Petrom and will start in January 2026.

OMV Petrom will provide around 800 GWh of green electricity for a period of 5 years. This contract, combined with a photovoltaic park currently in the final stage of development at the Călărași glass plant, will cover 100 percent of Saint-Gobain’s electricity needs in Romania.

Saint-Gobain Romania has 14 industrial sites in the country, covering glass, insulation, plasterboard and construction chemicals activities.

This contract is the second PPA signed by Saint-Gobain in Romania and will contribute to Saint-Gobain’s strategy of reducing its carbon footprint in the country in line with the Group’s net zero carbon emissions goal by 2050.
