Every business can benefit from lower utility bills and reduced emissions. This Water Saving Week is the perfect time to take a look at your usage and make effective, lasting changes.
Across the EU, buildings are responsible for generating 40% of all energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. Tackling this problem is a key step in reaching net zero targets. The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) was established to ensure a significant reduction in emissions from new and existing buildings.
The future of sustainable, clean energy relies on renewables. Unfortunately, that comes with a problem. Solar and wind are cheap forms of electricity but they rely on the right conditions to work. This sort of intermittent power cannot provide enough energy to completely reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. The electricity supply needs to be consistent, reliable and capable of handling surges in demand. That is where battery technology comes in.
If Covid-19 has taught us anything it is a newfound appreciation for the outdoors. Being confined to our homes has given us time to reflect on how important it is to protect our green, open spaces such as national parks. Now is a better time than any to make sure we have these beautiful spaces to return to in the future.
