    Molson Coors’ Fort Worth brewery switches to 100% renewable electricity

    January 19, 2023 -


      Molson Coors Beverage Company is moving its Fort Worth brewery in Texas to wind-powered, 100% renewable electricity this month: one step towards a target of net zero emissions by 2050.

      The company has signed a long-term agreement with EDF Energy Services to receive approximately 72,000 megawatts of power generated by the King Creek Wind Farm in north-central Texas, which went online late last year.

      The deal with EDF Energy Services ensures the brewery will have a reliable source of power – even when the wind isn’t blowing. The brewery’s power will be delivered via the local power grid with no change in service. (The brewery already uses some renewable energy in the form of biogas from its on-site anaerobic waste pre-treatment system, which supplies about 10% of the gas needed for the brewery’s steam boilers.)

      With the agreement, Fort Worth becomes Molson Coors’ first brewery in North America to be powered by 100% renewable electricity. It is the company’s fifth largest brewery, currently representing around 6% of the company’s total direct emissions.

      The company’s UK business switched to 100% wind power in 2021. Furthermore, the Fort Worth project opens the door for similar transitions at its other North American facilities, says Molson Coors: for example, work is underway at Molson Coors’ Golden brewery in Colorado to make it ‘one of the most efficient breweries in the world’.
