8,000 solar panels on the roof of Mabru market

The roof of the city’s morning wholesale produce market has been covered with almost 8,000 solar panels.

It has taken three months to build this solar panel installation which is the biggest one in Brussels.

The panels will provide up to a third of the market’s electricity needs – the equivalent of 590 homes. Any surplus produced will be sold to the national grid.

This was a joint business plan between Mabru and electricity firm Engie Sun4Business, which invested in the panels and installed them, gaining ownership of them for the next 10 years.

With 13,000m² of solar panels, the Mabru installation is the biggest in the City of Brussels – and one of the biggest in the whole Brussels region, although it is some way behind the Audi factory in Forest, which has 37,000m².

Mabru is one of the most important industrial zones in the Brussels region, with more than 100 wholesalers selling a range of fresh products each morning.
