Diagramm Halbach gives hours of sunlight away. 2,500 euros donated to the Elsebad lido.

Diagramm Halbach, Schwerte's security printing house, reports a record year in terms of solar energy. The 100,000 kWh record had already been cracked by the middle of November. Operating more than 1,200 photovoltaic modules, the Villigst-based family business runs one of the largest power plants for the generation of renewable energy in the region.

"2011 saw the highest yield produced since the system was installed four years ago," CEO Philipp Halbach reports.  "And the summer of 2011 was hardly a year that anyone would have described as being a particularly sunny one." In spite of the substandard summer weather, sunny spring and autumn months made it possible to achieve a 10 % increase in energy yield compared with the year before.

"The outdoor pool season this year was often less sunny than the Elsebad team would have liked, so we have decided to donate a few sunlight hours to the Elsebad lido as a symbolic gesture," Philipp Halbach explains. Diagramm Halbach is donating 2,500 euros to help finance the conversion of the "KinoKarren" open-air cinema, which is to be given a roof and made weatherproof for the new Elsebad season.

Diagramm Halbach has acquired a taste for solar energy. The company is planning to commission another photovoltaic installation at its Herne facility before the year is out. Both plants are expected to generate a total of around 250,000 kWh from next year onwards, sufficient to cover the annual energy requirements of 50 single-family homes.

Diagramm Halbach regards the generation of renewable energy as being one of the building blocks in a comprehensive program of environmental protection measures. These also include the rigorous recycling of production waste, efficient energy management and the use of papers from sustainable forest management. Fleischhauer Datenträger in Herne is to be certified in accordance with the requirements of ISO 14001, the international standard for environmental management systems, within the next few weeks as the first company in the Halbach Group to do so.
