DHL ECommerce UK's Facility in Camberley

DHL eCommerce UK has announced the opening of a new £7 million facility in Camberley. The site is powered almost entirely by solar energy.

The building has achieved the highest Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) rating, A+, due to its onsite renewable energy generation, IoT technology to minimize energy use, low-use water appliances and submeters, and the use of equipment and materials with low embodied carbon.

In instances when weather conditions necessitate the use of grid electricity, the site will source renewable energy. The 3,000 sqm facility will handle 10,000 parcels a day and includes ten electric van charging points.
