December 19 (Renewables Now) - Next year building materials supplier Cemex UK will use 100% renewable electricity at all sites supplied by Engie SA (EPA:ENGI) under an extended power purchase agreement (PPA).

Cemex UK, a subsidiary of cement maker Cemex (MXK:CEMEXCPO), said on Tuesday it has extended an existing PPA with the French utility for an additional 12 months, running through 2019. The electricity for more than 150 Cemex UK sites will be sourced from renewable energy facilities, including wind farms.

“The switch to electricity from renewable sources is playing a key role in our carbon-reduction strategy,” said Martin Hills, head of energy and carbon at Cemex UK.

Engie has been supplying Cemex UK with electricity for over 10 years, according to the press release.
