In a bid to invest more time, knowledge and funding into renewable energy sources, Scottish Hydro decided to create a Centre for Renewable Excellence, right in the middle of Glasgow's city centre.
Their new venue would boast an electric car garage, so people can charge and park their electric vehicles, along with a permanent exhibition that would be used to educate people of all ages about the various forms of renewable energy. The exhibition would allow visitors to explore the various forms of renewable energy production and outline how this clean form of energy can be used in the home.
After successfully pitching for the project against a number of other agencies, the team at Equator were brought on board to create a simple online presence for the exhibition centre. During the project, Scottish Hydro decided that they wanted to make the website much more interactive and informative. They came to us with a bigger budget to do so; obviously, we jumped at the opportunity to create something very special for their new investment.
Our design team was also tasked with the creation of a beautiful, head-turning wrap for SSE's electric car, which was eventually featured throughout the press. Even though we were faced with a very tight window to complete this project, we still managed to deliver a beautiful site on time and on budget.
The website enabled visitors to either book a charging slot for their electric vehicles, book a test drive in an EV or simply find out information about the exhibition. Since the launch of the site, we've received a lot of positive feedback and we're hoping to continue building the awareness of the site and enhancing engagement with users. A job well done.
