Apart from producing the well-known Budweiser beer the American group of companies Anheauser Busch controls also Leffe and Stella Artois brands. This year the US beer giant signed an agreement with the Italian energy company Enel Green Power for the green energy supply in the USA. The production of the Budweiser beer in will become completely “green” until the 2025.
Enel Green Power will assign a part of the Thunder Ranch wind energy plant to the production purposes of Anheauser Busch. The supply will reach 152,5 megawatt once the collaboration starts. It is not ruled out that the American company will require even more green energy from the Italian supplier to use it for the production of other brands’ products that belong to the corporation.
The Thunder Ranch wind Energy plant will produce about 610 gigawatt of energy per year for Anheauser Busch. This amount is enough to produce more than 20 billion steins of beer (or 7 billion litres) a year.

The agreement will let the American corporation to substitute up to 50% of annual electricity consumption with the energy from renewable sources. The energy generated by the Thunder Ranch wind Energy plant is enough to cover the energy consumptions of 50000 American families. It will reduce the CO2 emission by more than 400000 tons per year. The same amount can be saved by taking 85000 cars away from the roads every year.
