Lithium-ion battery major LG Energy Solution has won the Electromobility (E-Mobility) Leader 2021 Award for its Wroclaw manufacturing facility for its contribution toward zero-emission mobility in Poland.

LG Energy Solution Wroclaw is the single largest electric vehicle (EV) battery manufacturer in Europe, with a 70 GWh production capacity which is expected to reach 115 GWh by 2025. Its plant has already completed 100 per cent transition to renewable energy (RE100) in 2019 through the Green Pricing Scheme and the purchase of a Renewable Energy Certificate.

Commenting on the achievement, Sukwon Choi, President of LG Energy Solution Wroclaw, said “LG Energy Solution Wroclaw is trying to create a new dimension of the global automotive market. We see not only the growing demand for batteries, but also how important it is to take action on climate change, and we are pleased that our activities are being recognized and appreciated.”

This year, four winners were selected through analyzing candidates’ responses to the survey questionnaire prepared by PwC, as well as assessing their investment in research and plans for further development of zero-emission transport.

So far, all of the company’s global business sites have joined RE100. The company aims to beat the deadline by 20 years and transition all businesses to 100 per cent renewable energy by 2030.

The company’s manufacturing facilities in Wroclaw and Michigan have already achieved RE100 in 2019 and 2020, respectively, and two of its plants in Nanjing, China are also expected to do so within this year.

In line with the series of achievements, the company was recently designated as a member of the Advisory Committee of the RE100 Board of Directors.

The company in a statement said “our mission toward RE100 is becoming more important as we expand our investment in renewable energy, and more customers and investors asking us to take actions against climate change.”

“Batteries are central products in the carbon-neutral society, and accordingly, LGES will continue to establish exemplary practices in reducing greenhouse gas (GHG),” added the company spokesperson.

Moreover, the company is also putting efforts in reusing and recycling batteries. It is not only developing technologies for battery reuse in ESS (Energy Storage System), but also building a closed-loop system that enables extracting and recycling of raw materials from used batteries.
