Generating sustainable energy on-site is a key decarbonization pathway for organizations looking to reduce carbon emissions to achieve Net Zero. As organizations explore on-site options, solar energy is an attractive solution for most sustainable energy strategies. But, as organizations look to scale operations and maximize the power output, barriers to success arise.
Implementing an on-site solar program often requires the organization to supply the capital expenditure, source the assets, interact with local network operators, and manage the operational responsibilities. For organizations without the time and expertise to execute these steps, achieving decarbonization goals can become an uphill battle.
On-site solar refers to the installation of solar energy systems directly at the location where the energy will be used, such as homes, businesses, or institutions. It involves the deployment of solar panels or photovoltaic (PV) modules on rooftops, parking lots, or other available spaces on the property.
On-site solar installations can vary in size, from small residential systems to large commercial or industrial setups. These systems capture sunlight and convert it into electricity through the photovoltaic effect, where the PV cells within the solar panels generate a direct current (DC) that is then converted into alternating current (AC) by an inverter to be used by the electrical loads on site.
On-site Solar addresses key challenges organizations face when looking to meet their multi-site onsite solar objectives. The program allows ENGIE Impact to take on a bulk of the financial and operational responsibilities, including:
Partnering with ENGIE Impact gives organizations access to the resources and expertise to efficiently manage a multi-site solar program and to take advantage of local opportunities at each site. This partnership will accelerate near- and long-term decarbonization objectives, as well as increase the positive brand perception that comes with credible decarbonization action.
Our On-site Solar program combines central coordination and deployment through four phases that are rolled out for each batch of sites.
Global engineering support alongside local developers ensures standard quality and compliance with local requirements that builds strong support from the site level.
ENGIE Impact’s unique global footprint allows us to implement opportunities in multiple locations with ensured proximity and a strong understanding of the local context.
We follow up with suppliers through our central program management team throughout the detailed design and permitting phase to ensure the implementation schedule.
By working with ENGIE — a leading power producer, ENGIE Impact has access to key capabilities to valorize energy produced depending on local regulations.
