South Somerset District Council (SSDC) has appointed ENGIE to develop a net-zero carbon roadmap

ENGIE to produce the roadmap for achieving zero carbon for SSDC’s 10 largest energy-consuming sites following a rigorous selection process involving 29 bidders.

The District Council’s environment strategy sets out ambitious targets with a goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2030.

ENGIE will carry out energy audits and carbon assessments of all the sites involved and will develop a carbon reduction waterfall to identify priority areas where the greatest reductions can be achieved.

This will map out a path to enable SSDC to achieve optimum carbon savings in the most efficient and cost-effective ways.

Net-zero carbon ambitions

SSDC portfolio holder for environment, Sarah Dyke, said: “We have already implemented a wide range of carbon-saving initiatives across building management, transportation, waste management and environmental protection.

“Taking the strategy to the next level requires expert input and we were very impressed with ENGIE’s carbon-saving credentials.”

Stuart Denton-Brown, energy services director at ENGIE, said: “Developing a clear roadmap for achieving carbon-reduction targets is the first step in supporting SSDC in realising their net-zero carbon ambitions.

“We are already involved in such initiatives with a number of other local authorities so we can be confident we have the depth and breadth of services and experience to help SSDC achieve its goals.”
