About Distributed Energy from SSE Energy Solutions

What is Distributed Energy

Distributed energy is a ground-breaking approach to power generation that's transforming the way we meet our energy needs in the UK. Unlike traditional centralised systems, distributed energy involves generating power closer to where it's consumed, utilising local resources like solar, wind, and energy storage.

This innovative model enhances energy resilience, reduces transmission losses, and fosters sustainability by decreasing reliance on large power stations.

Embracing distributed energy empowers communities, businesses, and local authorities to actively contribute to a cleaner, more efficient energy landscape.

We provide local low-carbon assets and infrastructure solutions to decarbonise your organisation by investing, designing, owning, operating, maintaining, and optimising local energy infrastructure.

Distributed energy represents a collaborative and forward-thinking solution, paving the way for a greener and more sustainable future for the UK.

Decarbonising Power

The power sector is one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the UK. If the UK Government is to meet its carbon budgets the sector will need to be largely decarbonised by 2030. Critical factors to consider in achieving this will include policy changes, low-carbon technologies, grid up-grade requirements and realising the potential for innovation and sustainable growth.
