Scottish Green Energy Awards

12/12/2017

It's a win for SP Energy Networks at the Scottish Green Energy Awards!

For the third year in a row, SP Energy Networks have scooped an award at the Scottish Green Energy Awards.

Last week at the prestigious ceremony hosted by broadcast journalist and comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli, SP Energy Networks won the Sustainable Development Award for an innovative project to reduce the carbon footprint of substations.



Led by the Future Networks team, Project ‘FITNESS’ (Future Intelligent Transmission Network Substation)is paving the way forward to reducing the environmental impact of substations by 15% by minimising use of copper, reducing building sizes and enabling reuse of concrete structures.

FITNESS is supporting the UK’s first sustainable demonstration of a fully integrated digital substation, which will allow quicker commissioning of substations; reducing constraints on the network and enabling more renewable generation to connect with greater availability and control. A major focus of FITNESS is also improving safety at substations by reducing use of oil and gas and electrically isolating the substation primary equipment and control system.
