Syzygy has delivered over 80% of landlord funded solar projects on commercial buildings in the UK as well as being a pioneer within the EU market, and was the first to provide independent advice to the sector on delivering on-site renewable energy and low carbon technology solutions in 2010.
With its team of 55 professionals, the company is unique in this field, having both deep real estate expertise as well as over 150 years’ renewable energy engineering experience. As such, Syzygy was able to unlock the conundrum that has seen many large businesses flounder – developing smart lease variations which have been essential in helping landlords to overcome the rigid structure on FRI leased assets and enabling them to support occupiers across the UK and now the wider EU in funding rooftop solar PV. This is sometimes regarded as a dry subject, however it is beyond doubt that without Syzygy’s innovation and ability to help its clients navigate this complex area, the industry which contributes 40% of the UKs carbon emissions would be significantly farther from its net zero target.
Syzygy have pioneered the rules of engagement for PV and EV solutions for the UK and EU’s largest real estate owners including every FTSE 250 listed real estate company alongside Blackstone, Brookfield, abrdn, Hermes, KKR, GLP, Prologis, Goodman, Lasalle and many others, through 13 years of educating the UK’s largest real estate valuation teams on the operating models for various green tech, and setting up the processes and structures that have now become established as the market norm.
