Achieve the widescale adoption and implementation of sustainable and renewable energy technologies.
By streamlining and the way stakeholders can identify opportunities for low carbon technologies, an otherwise complex and expensive process can be simplified, and decarbonisation targets can be met.
An Energy Transition
Decarbonisation of the energy sector is an urgent requirement to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. With many governmental energy targets now in place, a huge clean energy transition is underway involving the cost-effective improvement of current energy usage and well as the widescale transition from fossil-based reliance to zero-carbon solutions.

Unique Energy Insights
Seeking out new opportunities for low carbon technologies, we are assisting our clients with project aggregation facilitation whilst enhancing the speed of deployment. The intelligence we provide allows stakeholders to rapidly assess land and building suitabilities for a variety of low carbon technologies including; Solar PV, Ground Source Heat Pumps, Wind, Air Source Heat Pumps, Battery Storage, Loft and External Wall Insulation and more.
A city-scale assessment of rooftop solar suitability is rapid and at scale, delivering an objective evidence base that facilitates the widespread implementation of rooftop solar panel deployment strategies. Looking at the individual roof facets for their pitch, aspect, useable area and average annual irradiance, an estimated per property cost and benefit, both financial and environmental, can be calculated.

Energy Efficiency Analysis
Our energy efficiency analysis services provide a rapid insight into key building characteristics associated with energy performance, accelerating the identification of inefficient properties and enabling determination of the most suitable and beneficial measures for energy improvements. Utilising a combination of geospatial data sources we identify and report on building material types, size and dimensions, and heat loss levels.
GEOSPATIAL INSIGHT TO ASSESS SOLAR POTENTIAL OF WINCHESTER’S LAND TO SUPPORT CLIMATE AND ENERGY ACTION
Geospatial Insight have been selected by Winchester City Council to assess the solar potential of over 600 square kilometres of its non-urban land, in support of the Authority’s ambitions to become carbon neutral by 2024, and their goal for the entire district to become carbon neutral by 2030. The analysis will also include Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) sites, to enable better decision making about the most beneficial future use of SHELAA locations.
Millions of families in the UK risk being forced into fuel poverty after the energy price cap was increased in April leading to bills going up by £693 for 18 million households on standard tariffs. With further increases of up to £800 expected in October, when the energy price cap is next reviewed, it doesn’t appear there will be a reprieve any time soon. But what is specifically behind the energy crisis in the UK? What have other countries done to avoid similarly disastrous situations? What can the country do to mitigate the impact and help millions of citizens and businesses? And importantly, how can we reduce our reliance on fossil fuels in favour of clean energy sources, such as solar power?
Geospatial Insight have been selected by a consortium of Public Sector bodies, including Isle of Wight Council, South West Net Zero Hub, and the West of England Combined Authority, to undertake a detailed analysis of the Isle of Wight’s key urban conurbations and council owned car parks to support the development of a public EV infrastructure deployment strategy for the south coast island.
