About the Costa Verde Case Study

The energy transition of companies is essential for all of us because the energy bill is increasingly high - for companies and for the planet. Costa Verde has already started this path in 2017 and the first 5 years are translated into economic and ecological indicators that are shared in this case study.

This example can help you and your company to take the necessary steps to become more competitive, according to the energy needs of your business.

Costa Verde is a world class design and innovation company in porcelain, its products stand out for their high quality index. The factory is located in the District of Aveiro and has a covered area of 30,000 m² and an available area of over 60,000 m².

Since 2017 it benefits from a solar photovoltaic plant on its roof with an installed power of 998 kWp. This plant was developed by Helexia Portugal and included the necessary investment for its implementation and operation.
