ACES is a commercial compressor manufacturer specialising in industrial cooling, refrigeration, and heating appliances, located in Oxford. Their manufacturing facility is in a building with a trapezoidal roof and a weekday energy consumption profile from 8 am to 5 pm.


A significant portion, 38%, of the building's energy demand is met through solar energy generation, resulting in substantial energy savings.  

The PV system boasts a relatively short payback period of around 5 years, attributed to the high onsite consumption of solar energy.  

The installed PV system demonstrates remarkable on-site consumption, peaking at 93% on weekdays year-round, with minimal export occurring primarily only on weekends.
