About our Business
SSE has a vision to help the UK towards achieving net zero carbon by changing from single energy assets to Whole System Thinking.
It is here where Distributed Energy becomes key to delivering a low carbon world.
Why Whole System Thinking?
SSE’s Distributed Energy Business aims to deliver solutions that bring together the diverse needs of all stakeholders into a single unified outcome that maximises both short and long-term benefits.
Decarbonisation Stripping carbon out of the energy chain to deliver maximum impact comes under the direct control of the local generation asset owners, giving greater ability to dictate the pace of the sustainability agenda.
Decentralisation Bringing energy generation and management closer to the point of use reduces dependence on national infrastructure, and puts energy resilience into the direct control of the energy user groups.
Digitalisation Utilising digital technology to leverage information across all elements of the local energy infrastructure can help to achieve maximum effectiveness of energy use across multiple connected assets.
Democratisation Bringing local energy ownership and participation to achieve a truly united energy transition. The Consumer is no longer just the recipient of energy but is enabled to feed electricity into the grid.
