We spoke to the EDP about our solar carport for Aviva’s Horizon building

RenEnergy’s first solar carport project has gained media exposure in local newspaper, the Eastern Daily Press.

We spoke to EDP journalist, Caroline Culot, ahead of our open day at the Aviva Horizon Building in July. Her short piece covers the scope of our solar carport project, and why generating sustainable energy on-site was important to Aviva.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

“Across the course of a year, this system will provide more than 32pc of the site’s total energy demand, representing a carbon offset saving of 166.5 tonnes per year, and a major contribution towards Aviva’s efforts to tackle climate change.

In 2006 Aviva became the first carbon neutral international insurer, and is working towards a 70pc reduction in operational CO2 emissions across the whole company by 2030.

Stuart Wright, property and facilities manager at Aviva said:

‘The solar carport is a really innovative way to generate green energy, tackle climate change and reduce our environmental impact. It’s a fantastic design that delivers on the environmental benefits without impacting on space.’”

Thanks to EDP for the write-up, and to Aviva for collaborating with us on the open day event.
