Bristan Group charges ahead with mass solar panel installation in line with plans to reduce carbon emissions – Renewable Energy Magazine

The installation forms part of the group’s wider sustainability initiatives and ambitions to create an energy-efficient infrastructure, as outlined in its Environmental, Social and Governance report in September last year.

In line with the organisation’s ambitions to reduce its carbon footprint, Bristan Group made plans to better utilise its existing infrastructure and has now successfully installed 1666 individual solar panels on the roof of its headquarters, with the support of energy partner Evo Energy.

The installation is expected to generate over 600kw/hour of electricity to support the business by integrating solar power into day-to-day operations and will equate to a CO2 savings of approximately 100,000 kgs per annum.

Whilst this project will directly impact the organisation’s current carbon output, as the 666kWp solar panel system is set to generate approximately 56 percent of the site’s electricity needs, the wider area will also benefit as approximately 44 percent of the electricity generated by the solar panel system will be exported back to the grid through the the Grid Repay Scheme — which is currently the maximum amount possible on the estate where the organisation is located.

“This is another impressive step in Bristan Group’s sustainability journey working towards our aspirational goal of net zero” said Paul Jones HSE and QMS and Facilities Manager at Bristan Group, commenting on the solar panel installation. “Having led on this project, I’m delighted to see the success of the installation and look forward to witnessing its impact on our carbon emissions. At Bristan Group, we remain committed to reducing our impact on the environment year-on-year through energy saving and renewable initiatives. This is a huge step forward for us, but there is still work to be done.”

The successful switch over to solar power was completed on 25th April, marking a pivotal moment in Bristan Group’s journey to net zero.
