With COP26 on the horizon, world leaders will soon join together to tackle the most pressing environmental issues. This comes on the heels of a new report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), issuing a stark warning that global warming is on a dangerous trajectory.

The energy digitalisation taskforce was established with the intention that the UK would further its leadership in sustainability. But how will it impact you?

Around 60 UK councils have now joined the ever growing ‘net-zero pledge’. This means one-third of the UK population is now represented by councils aiming to reach net-zero targets by 2045.

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.
