Aviva Switches on one of the UK’s Largest Solar and Storage Projects

Company: Aviva Central Services UK Limited
Location: Nationwide
Product: 100% Renewable Natural - Flexible Supply  
Customer since: October 2017

The opportunity:
Aviva have strengthened their net-zero commitments with the launch of their 1.1MW combined solar carports and a 1.8MW battery storage facility. Located at their Perth office, Scotland, this is one of the UK's largest renewable installations of it's kind, producing enough power to take the site off the grid for 5 hours per day.

The result:
SmartestEnergy have worked with Aviva alongside World Kinect Energy Services to incorporate the battery and solar forecasts into their standard supply forecast. This has resulted in significant changes to the site’s consumption profile as well as the predictability of imbalance levels/charges.

Nick Amin, Aviva Chief Operating Officer, says, “It’s vital that businesses in all industries put words into action when it comes to tackling the climate emergency. That’s why we are taking strides to reduce our environmental impact and partner with leading technology specialists to help make that happen. The Perth solar and storage initiative is a great example of how Aviva is innovating to secure a sustainable energy supply and support the electric vehicle revolution.”

The future:
The three companies have committed to continually work together to manage forecasting as the battery usage develops.
