SSE Renewables innovates rapidly with new technology solutions to drive sustainability and culture change

SSE Renewables is a leading renewable energy generator in the UK. It is wanting to grow and needed a new outlook on how it thinks about innovation to gain a competitive advantage within the industry. The company found a good cultural fit with Microsoft and Avanade due to our expertise and similar values in terms of responsible business and sustainability. Together, we launched a new digital ventures team to help SSE Renewables better connect with technology. Ideas were generated in initial workshops that resulted in four use cases:

  • Automated monitoring of puffins – a bird species that is otherwise difficult to track
  • A field services application
  • Hydro catchment monitoring
  • Hydro dashboards

“We’re looking to deploy new technology across all businesses within renewables. Without a doubt, Avanade will keep the speed going, keep the innovation going and really get that value that we’re after.”

John Downes Director of Engineering and Innovation, SSE Renewables
