Solar rooftops are to be deployed at Toyota facilities across five countries, with plans to exploit synergies with existing lithium-ion batteries.
According to PV-Tech, consultancy Eneo Solutions said up to 8MW of PV will be added to buildings of Toyota Material Handling Group (TMHG), a warehouse gear-making unit within the Japanese multinational.
The program is billed by its promoters as the first cross-border PPA arrangement seen in the global rooftop PV ecosystem. The scheme will tap into the energy storage units already on site, used to power TMHG’s electric forklift trucks.
“The module-based Li-ion batteries will be given a third life as cost-efficient, stationary storage for solar energy,” said TMHG in a statement. “Electric trucks can be charged with solar energy, even when the sun is not shining.”
