FREE AS A BIRD - It is happening. Wind energy is providing bucket loads of energy that will be more useful with the kind of load leveling that battery and hydrogen storage can provide, to make better use of all that captured natural power. Windmills and sails had been working for mankind for hundreds of years before the discovery of electricity. These graceful machines can be located in isolated areas where winds are strong and reliable.

 

 

ABOUT SSE

 

SSE has set four fundamental goals for 2030 which put sustainability at the heart of its business.

SSE’s business strategy places addressing the challenge of climate change at the very core of what they do – that’s why they have decided to link long-term business goals to the UN’s global goals for sustainable development (the SDGs).

 

These four goals are:

- Cutting carbon intensity
- Treble renewable energy output
- Help accommodate 10 million EVs
- Champin fair tax and real living wage

These goals help SSE achieve its vision of being a leading energy company in a low-carbon world.

 

 

GO AHEAD LONDON

 

SSE Enterprise is helping thousands of London commuters travel by electric bus after installing hundreds of charging points across the capital


The business has delivered six projects for four bus operators – including Go-Ahead London – totalling almost £7million over the last three years


In total SSE Enterprise will deliver more than 330 electric bus charging points in London by April 2020 as the capital’s iconic red bus fleet transitions from diesel to other power sources over the coming years.

 

SSE Enterprise’s work included Go-Ahead London’s ground-breaking Waterloo Garage development, which became the first, and currently only, all-electric bus garage in the country, complete with 43 charging points in 2016.

Since that time, Go-Ahead London has safely operated around seven million emission-free electric kilometres from three of its 16 bus garages.
