September 7 (Renewables Now) - Brazilian sugar and ethanol producer Raizen SA (BVMF:RAIZ4) has inked a deal to supply renewable power to Zamp (BVMF:BKBR3), the master franchisee of the Burger King and Popeyes brands in Brazil.
Under the agreement, Raizen will deliver 4.3 GWh of clean electricity per year to 44 Burger King and Popeyes stores. The power will come from solar and biogas plants in 12 states across the whole country and will be distributed by 15 different power concessionaires, Raizen announced on Monday.
Rafael Rebello, Director of Energy and Renewable Solutions at Raizen, said that the power contracted is accredited under the International REC Standard (I-REC).
ZAMP already has five distributed generation (DG) power plants capable of generating 9,383 MWh per year, enough to meet the demand of 68 Burger King and Popeyes stores.
