The Port of Gothenburg is currently investing in solar power panels. A 250 square metre solar panel array will be installed on the roof of the head office. Once completed, it will be the most efficient solar panel facility in western Sweden. The Port of Gothenburg expects to save SEK 60,000 in energy costs each year, the company said in its press release.

A 250 square metre solar panel array is currently being installed on the roof of Amerikaskjulet, which is the building in which the Port of Gothenburg has its head office. The panels will generate 55 megawatt-hours of electricity each year – equivalent to around five per cent of the building's total energy consumption.

"The Port of Gothenburg aims to be climate neutral. With this new facility our head office will be more energy efficient," said Edvard Molitor, Senior Manager Environment at the Port of Gothenburg.

The panels that have been chosen are among the best available. Once installation has been completed in June it will be the most efficient solar panel array in western Sweden, calculated in terms of electricity generation per surface unit. Amerikaskjulet has approximately 9,000 square metres of office and storage space.
