Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme: capital projects - March 2024

Information on the projects which have received funding through the Low Carbon Infrastructure Transition Programme.

Aviva Low Carbon Infrastructure Project

Project Organisation:


Technology type(s):

1.8 MW solar carport with battery storage (700-900 MWh per year) and 50 electric vehicle charging stations


Pitheavlis building – Aviva Perth office

Grant value:

£1.506 million

Completion Date:

May 2021

Project description:

The RenEnergy solar array installed generates enough energy to allow the site to be able to go off-grid and the battery will power the site for five hours each day. Approximately three quarters of the solar generated energy is used on site, with about a quarter being stored in the Tesla batteries supplied by Tesla.

Fifty electric vehicle charging points were installed for Aviva employees to use which can potentially save 209,241 kg CO2e if all spaces are used twice a day. This represents a relative reduction of 80% compared to baseline emissions.
