The Arena and Convention Centre (ACC) Liverpool

We’ve worked with The ACC Liverpool Group for over 9 years, helping them to generate £20,000 to £25,000 worth of renewable energy and save 130 tonnes of carbon every year

The challenge

We’ve been working with The ACC Liverpool Group since it opened. As well as providing all its electricity and gas, we help them make the most of the business opportunities energy provides, turning expenses into sustainable profits.

Since opening, over six million visitors have come through The ACC Liverpool Group’s doors, for over 3,000 events. That demands a lot of energy. As a service business, they rely on everything running smoothly and that extra attention to detail to keep their customers happy.

The results

  • £20,000 - £25,000 renewable energy generated each year
  • 130 tonnes of harmful carbon gasses saved each year
  • One of the most sustainable venues of its kind

E.ON have been our energy provider from day one and they're a huge part of our ongoing drive for ever greater sustainability.

Gerald Andrews, Finance Director at ACC Liverpool

How we did it

In 2015, we installed 925 solar panels which we run and maintain, providing around 5-10% of the venue’s electricity. Now, we’re exploring the potential benefits from solutions like standby generation and ground source heat pumps, as well as sustainable lighting and HVAC systems, for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. 

The ACC Liverpool Group also benefit from buying energy flexibly, direct from the wholesale market, through our E.ON Portfolio Solutions service.
