Solar Power For Ferrari - Web Exclusive

We're not yet talking about a zero-emissions Ferrari, although that day cannot be far away... However, a new photovoltaic system, installed on the roof of Ferrari's Engine Mechanical Machining facility, has been officially unveiled to the world.

The installation comes as part of Ferrari's ongoing environmental sustainability and renewable resources investment program.

The photovoltaic panels will reduce the amount of power Ferrari takes from the national grid by over 210,000kWh annually. The system is the work of EnerRay, a Maccaferri Group company.

Ferrari's plan to reduce the environmental impact of its production activities also includes the installation of a tri-generation plant, which will be operational by the middle of this year. The new plant will cover virtually all of the company's electricity requirements, which will in turn cut its CO2 emissions in 2009 by 25-30%, compared to the present levels.

Ferrari's commitment to environmental sustainability dates all the way back to 2001 when it was awarded ISO 14001 certification; the Prancing Horse also obtained Integrated Environmental Authorization in 2007.

Over the last few years, Ferrari has also made numerous investments to increase the size and number of green areas both inside and outside its various industrial pavilions. The complex now boasts around 165,000 square meters of green areas with more than 200 trees planted in the last six months alone.

The environmental protection investments are also part of the overall Formula Uomo program launched in the early '90s by President Luca di Montezemolo to put the needs and skills of the individual workers at the center of the Company's activities.
