4th December 2023

In a recent video interview, Jonny, the Head of Group Operations at Hannon Transport, detailed their transformative experience with Encom, marking a significant step towards sustainability and cost-effective energy management. We delve into their journey, underscoring the benefits of solar power and Encom's role in reshaping how businesses approach energy consumption, particularly in the face of Northern Ireland's rising energy costs.


Hannon Transport's Green Leap

Hannon Transport, a leading player in the frozen and chilled logistics sector, has taken a significant step forward by installing a large solar photovoltaic (PV) system at their headquarters. This initiative, aimed at reducing their carbon footprint and managing energy costs, is a testament to the company's commitment to environmental stewardship. Jonny's praise for Encom's seamless process—from initial discussions to the design and installation of the solar system—highlights the effectiveness and ease of transitioning to renewable energy sources.

The Encom Experience

Encom's expertise in providing renewable energy solutions is evident in Hannon Transport's satisfaction with the project. Our approach, which prioritises understanding the client's needs and delivering tailor-made solutions, has earned high commendation from Hannon’s. This client-centric approach, coupled with technical excellence, has positioned Encom as a trusted partner for businesses looking to embrace green energy.


The Impact on Energy Costs

For businesses in Northern Ireland, where an increase in energy costs is anticipated due to grid upgrades, solar energy presents a viable solution. By harnessing solar power, companies can significantly reduce their reliance on traditional energy sources, thereby mitigating the impact of rising costs. Hannon Transport's initiative with Encom serves as an example for other businesses contemplating a shift towards more sustainable and cost-effective energy solutions.


Future Collaborations

The success of this project has paved the way for future work between Hannon Transport and Encom. Plans are already underway to extend this green initiative to one of Hannon's premises in Dublin. This expansion reflects the company's confidence in Encom's ability to deliver efficient and effective solar energy systems.


Broader Implications for Businesses

Hannon Transport's collaboration with Encom demonstrates how businesses can use renewable energy to reduce operational costs and aid environmental conservation, particularly in areas like Northern Ireland facing high energy expenses. This partnership is a model for sustainable business practices, addressing energy cost challenges and benefiting the environment. It sets a precedent for companies aiming to blend economic and environmental sustainability.
