EQ was Bristol’s first commercial office building to target net-zero in operation.

We spoke with property investment, management and development company, CEG, to find out more about this stunning building – and why they chose to power it with our 100% renewable electricity.

Why did you want EQ to be powered by 100% renewable electricity?

Constructed in 2023, EQ is a state of the art office development with sustainability and wellbeing at its heart. With an EPC A rating and targeting some of the most challenging sustainability standards in the industry, powering the building with genuinely renewable energy was a must.

“We were looking for a deep green electricity supply aligned with UKGBC recommendations, for a building targeting net zero in operation – and that’s what led us to Good Energy.”

“Good Energy offers a deeper green tariff than many others, which assured us that it was providing the additionality and transparency we needed.”

What makes EQ so sustainable?

EQ has been designed with the aim of achieving BREEAM Outstanding – a standard that demonstrates an “exceptional commitment to sustainability”. With seven floors of office space, as well as an events space, fitness space and hospitality lounge, the building has been constructed using fabric-first design to reduce the amount of energy it needs. It’s all-electric with a connection to Bristol’s heat network. EQ is powered by our 100% renewable electricity and heated and cooled using heat pumps and heat-recovery.

A rooftop full of solar panels helps the building to save 29 tonnes of carbon every year; and its clever façade maximises use of daylight by following the line of the sun.

CEG has considered commuters too. With space for 260 cyclists, including e-bike charge points; and EV charging for 32 cars, the building inspires its occupants to travel sustainably.
