Aberdeenshire seeks ideas for 'smart solar' pilot

10 Oct 18 Aberdeenshire Council has launched a request for information (RFI) ahead of a pilot programme that will see hundreds of homes fitted with solar PV, battery storage and 'smart' energy management systems.

The 'smart storage and solar' package will be installed  approximately 500 council-owned homes. Complementing the project will be the requirement to enter into an agreement with a grid services aggregator, with the council receiving a revenue stream.

The council said that the purpose of the RFI is to bring the opportunity to the attention of the market and invite the submission of expressions of interest and information on current or planned capabilities.

Information provided as part of the RFI will be used for analysis and research only. IIt will not be used to form judgements regarding supplier performance, capacity or capability under any future procurement process, stressed the council.
