Cornish technology sits at the heart of northern Europe’s largest rooftop solar installation following the inauguration of more than an acre of solar panels on the roof of TopDanmark’s headquarters in Copenhagen last week.
St Austell-based, Enigin PLC, has provided the project with a sophisticated real-time energy monitoring system, Eniscope, through a partnership with Danish distributor, IQ Energy.
The system will aggregate information on the power generated from the 3,042 solar panels on the Danish insurance company’s offices, providing a visual display of the data to visitors and staff.
The installation was formally opened by former prime minister of Denmark, Lars Løkke Rasmussen, while EU climate commissioner, Connie Hedegaard, was also in attendance.
Enigin MD, Troy Wrigley, said: “It is great to see technology developed by our team in Cornwall playing a key role in some of the world’s leading renewable projects. This is just one of many exciting installations carried out by our network of distributors worldwide and we look forward to sharing details of more projects like this in the future.”
The installation in Copenhagen will generate around 752,000 kWh, corresponding to the average annual power consumption of around 200 households, saving approximately 600 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.
