Benefits of Off-Grid Energy
Cost-Efficient Off-Grid Energy Solutions
Adopting off-grid energy solutions delivers a multitude of benefits to your business. Not only will you be achieving your sustainability goals and playing your part in our journey to Net Zero, you will also be having a positive impact on your bottom line. Investing in cost-efficient sustainable energy solutions can achieve significant cost savings and heavily reduce the impact of energy price fluctuations.
At Veolia, we specialise in providing businesses with access to reliable and flexible off-grid power generation solutions to achieve both your environmental and financial needs.
Reliable Energy Generation
Reduce your reliance on the main grid energy and shift towards energy supplies that you can rely on. Our reliable off-grid power generation solutions ensure that your business can continue operating seamlessly, even in the face of volatile grid power. You can rely on tailored off-grid solutions to keep your operations running smoothly, regardless of external circumstances.
Flexible and Resilient Energy Solutions
Our off-grid energy solutions offer enhanced flexibility and resilience for your business. We understand that each building and sector has unique needs, which is why our systems can operate both in parallel with and independently from the National Grid. This flexibility allows you to customize your energy usage based on your specific requirements.
Efficient Energy Storage
Efficient battery energy storage is a crucial component of our off-grid energy solutions. Our solutions ensure you can store energy from multiple sources, including multiple source generators, solar panels, or the main grid. This stored energy can then be redistributed to any site that needs power at a later date, ensuring a reliable off-grid presence.
Exploring sustainable energy - operating without fossil fuels
In a world grappling with the urgent need to transition to a sustainable future, the concept of "keeping the lights on" takes on a whole new meaning. This document sheds light on the challenges ahead and the innovative solutions in place to tackle the growing issue. Join us on our journey as we uncover innovative strategies for a cleaner and more resilient future.
What is off-grid energy?
Off-grid energy is the generation and use of energy without connection to a traditional power grid, also known as the main grid or mains.
It regularly involves using alternative renewable energy sources such as solar panels, heat pumps or generators that run on biofuels. In addition, off-grid energy systems typically include energy storage solutions, such as batteries, to store excess energy for use at a later date when energy generation is at a lower capacity.
What is the most efficient off-grid power source?
The most efficient off-grid power source can vary dramatically depending on factors such as location, available resources, and energy needs. However, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are widely considered one of the most efficient and reliable off-grid power sources.
Solar panels convert sunlight directly into electricity and have improved in efficiency over the years. They are a popular choice for off-grid systems due to their low maintenance requirements and long lifespan. Although the UK sometimes lacks abundant solar energy, advancements in battery storage technologies allow additional or excess energy to be stored for use during the night and overcast conditions.

Is off-grid electricity cheaper?
The cost of off-grid electricity can vary depending on multiple factors. The first factor to consider is that set up costs of off-grid energy solutions can be costly. However, once the system is in place, your ongoing costs can be significantly lower as there are no monthly utility bills to pay.
The next consideration is the long-term savings from using renewable energy sources. Off-grid systems typically use solar, wind or heat energy which have no fuel costs, unlike fossil fuel-based energy generation. Over time, this can result in significant savings, especially as the cost of renewable energy solutions decrease and become more accesible.
