The cooperating partner is the Hamburg energy provider LichtBlick SE. With Audi energy, the A3 e-tron is totally emission-free when operated electrically.
The power all comes from renewable energy sources and is generated exclusively at hydro-electric power stations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The Audi A3 e‑tron can be recharged when parked at your home with Audi energy. At the same time, the entire household is supplied with eco-friendly electric power. Audi energy is currently available for a basic monthly fee of EUR 8.95 and 26.76 cents per kilowatt-hour.
The origin and quality of the green electricity are certified by TÜV Nord. The “OK power” seal of quality also confirms the expansion of power generation from renewable sources: at least one-third of the electricity comes from hydro-electric power plants less than six years old. Providers of this green electricity do not make use of federal subsidies pursuant to the German Renewable Energy Act (EEG). In addition, LichtBlick protects one square meter (10.76 square feet) of rainforest in Ecuador per customer per month.
With LichtBlick Audi has chosen one of the largest independent energy providers in Germany as its partner. The company is the market leader for green electricity and has already received numerous awards for its products, its price-performance ratio and its good service.
