Since 2010, we have delivered projects and continue to manage assets for many of the UK and Europe’s largest REITS, Pension Funds, Listed companies, Insurance companies, and Asset Managers.
These include retailers, industrial occupiers, transport and logistic businesses, developers and local & national government bodies. Here’s a few examples of projects we feel particularly proud of.
As a provider of charging solutions, we regularly use Syzygy proprietary software evlab® to help us determine the best locations for our rapid chargers and size our offers. Combining thousands of datapoints, evlab® algorithm transforms raw market data, often difficult to interpret, into useful insights of the local EV market and actionable site-specific recommendations. By providing a forecast of the demand, it also enables us to draw long-term deployment strategies and approach customers with strong data-backed advice.
Syzygy managed a retro-fit PV project for us at our Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre in Sheffield. They took the project from identifying the opportunity, producing the financial appraisals through to delivering the final installation and now they monitor it for us. We felt it was important to use an experienced specialist consultancy to run this project for us, and have been very pleased with Syzygy’s work to this end.
Working with our landlord abrdn, Syzygy has enabled Boden to take strides in the decarbonisation of our business. The vast solar system on our roof at Optimus Point (equivalent to the size of around 24 tennis courts!) will meet around 40% of our annual electricity demand. Not only does it provide us with clean, green energy but it also provides some cost savings on our energy bills. One of the most important things for Boden is that it will help reduce our carbon footprint and serve to effectively reduce our CO2 emissions by 230 tonnes this year alone.
Syzygy’s NetZero Toolkit® provided a clear path to reduce SEGRO’s site wide operational carbon emissions at Premier Park, through onsite initiatives and embedded energy generation. This, coupled with Syzygy’s extensive knowledge and experience commercialising renewable energy opportunities, delivered a clear route to reducing our asset level operational carbon. We are now deploying this approach on other industrial assets throughout London.
I am really pleased to say that we were an early adopter of evlab® to help us quantify the EV charging requirements on our Regional Office fund. We wanted independent, quantitative analysis of our sites to help us make that investment decision – evlab® provided us with this.
There is a pressing need for transparency and consistency in how we will deliver net-zero carbon and the importance of rapid decarbonisation in the sector is increasing year on year. Syzygy have been and continue to be integral to the progressive decarbonisation of our fund portfolios. The combination of hands-on real estate asset management experience together with their obvious technical ability is what set them apart when assessing who to work with. We have been delighted with the work carried out and would have no hesitation in recommending Syzygy to other property owners.
