Due to the increasing awareness and critical importance of achieving the UK’s net zero targets, we are involved in many diverse, strategic energy projects for our real estate clients across the UK and Europe.
These projects require holistic thinking, innovative ideas, and integrated commercial and technical solutions harnessing the skills and expertise right across our expanding consultancy business.
We're all about cutting through the complexity to enable focussed decision making and are involved in many facets of the energy supply chain to unlock commercial, environmental and social value.
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.
We love the work at Capital Park, Cambridge. You did a fabulous job there, as you do for us on so many assets. You are helping us on actual ‘doing’ and that is the difference between talking about making a positive change on climate and truly delivering. Thanks so much!
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.
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 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.
We're specialists in market tested commercialisation strategies, such as the integration of solar power on rooftops, EV charging and energy storage. Solutions that can help landlords and occupiers move towards net zero and crucially also make a financial return.
Many of our projects result in the crystallisation of the ‘energy value’ to an occupier, where the capital cost of the project is less than the value of the energy to an occupier during their lease term.
At Syzygy, we consider carefully on a case-by-case basis the pros and cons of all green technologies applicable to the location in which they are to be deployed. We’re witnessing a huge increase in enquiries about battery energy storage systems (BESS), as they migrate the risks associated with the uncertainty of future grid electricity costs and grid network capacity by optimising electricity consumption on-site.
Equally, they offer flexibility in the development of ‘smart gird’s and will be integral to future proof the UK’s infrastructure as the country races to net zero.
EV Charging Infastructure.
We work with clients on all aspects of EV charging. We provide an overall charging strategy and full analysis of sites using our evlab® software, identifying the number of chargers required along with forecast requirements to futureproof our clients’ assets.
The Asset Management team manages income streams, the operation and fault detection of the EV charging points, and arrange planned and reactive works in line with the manufacturer’s warranty requirements.
