We have set ourselves high goals for the future, too. By now, we have optimized our energy consumption by 2.2 terawatt hours. Our aim for 2020 is around 3.5 terawatt hours. That equates to roughly 1.3 million tons of CO2. For comparison: A wind farm like Alpha Ventus off the Borkum island produces an average of 250 gigawatt hours per year. One terawatt hour equates 1.000 gigawatt hours.
