Dutch ASML realizes new hydropower plant in Norway


Oslo - June 11, 2018 ( Newswire) Yet another European corporation, this time ASML - the Dutch technology company, has made the construction of a new renewable power plant possible. Sandvik, a small hydropower plant on the west coast of Norway, is now generating electricity and supplying clean power to the grid. ASML provided crucial top-financing to the building of Sandvik through a high impact renewable energy product called ECOHZ GO2. GO2 combines the purchase of documented renewable power with the financing and building of new renewable power capacity.

ASML is the world's largest supplier of photolithography systems. Chip manufacturers use ASML's machines to produce the microchips that are at the center of electronic devices.

"ASML is committed to operating sustainably and takes responsibility for the economic, social and environmental impact of its business decision. GO2 provides a great opportunity for companies such as ASML to create new renewable energy production for the grid", the company states.

When a business purchases GO2, they match the energy they consume with documented energy production from a renewable source with a direct contribution to the ECOHZ Renewable Energy Foundation. The Foundation identifies and lends money to renewable energy projects that are ready to be constructed, but lack the final and crucial capital needed to initiate construction.

When a company purchases GO2 for a partial or full years' worth of electricity consumption, the company's purchase will set into motion multiple investments in new renewable energy production.

"After the ECOHZ Foundation loan has been repaid from the income of the renewable power plant that was financed, the ECOHZ Foundation will once again lend the money ASML contributed to other renewable energy projects in need of financing. Based on the current financing models we are using, ASML's single decision will result in the building of other renewable energy power plants in the future. We extrapolate that this system will by 2030 generate around 67 GWh. Sandvik is an example of how companies can easily contribute to renewable energy production and participate in the global energy transition," says Tom Lindberg, Managing Director of ECOHZ.


ECOHZ offers global renewable energy solutions to businesses, organisations and electricity providers - providing renewable electricity, from a wide range of sources, regions and qualities. Renewable electricity is documented by Guarantees of Origin in Europe, RECs in North America and International RECs (I-RECs) in a growing number of countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa. ECOHZ also provides an innovative additionality solution - GO² - combining renewable energy purchases with the financing and building of new renewable power generation. Companies choosing documented renewable energy can reduce their carbon footprint and improve their sustainability ratings. ECOHZ is among the leading independent suppliers in Europe, and has offices in Norway and Switzerland. ECOHZ endeavours to play an active role in the current energy transition through its vision of "changing energy behaviour".
