Energy Solutions to Help Industrial Productivity
All manufacturing and other industrial processes require a variety of energy services, including electricity and high temperature heat. Reducing energy costs can improve productivity and competitiveness. Industry is one of the largest users of energy in the economy and is also a substantial contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, which can be reduced with energy efficiency.
Reducing Energy Losses from Commercial Buildings
Buildings are responsible for some 40% of energy demand and carbon emissions and require a continuous supply of electricity and heat. On-site energy generation as well as energy conservation measures such as lighting, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and controls can improve performance and reduce emissions.
Reducing Carbon Footprint Across the Retail Estate
Stores and distribution centres are substantial energy users, very often located at or close the centre of towns or cities. Energy demand reduction initiatives such as lighting and temperature control inside of buildings can improve conditions for customers and staff. On site energy generation, including small scale CHP, solar and renewable heat can also reduce cost and carbon.
Supporting Technology Growth with Reliable Power
The information and communications technology sector is one the largest and fastest growing energy consuming sectors in the world. Datacentres, which use energy 24/7 are projected to become the largest single user of electricity by the middle of the decade, potentially using more energy than all existing consumer devices combined. Electricity, cooling and backup power are all critical services in the operations of datacentres.
Critical Energy Services for Critical Care Services
Hospitals need reliable and cost-effective energy services throughout the year, ranging from electricity and heat, to hot water and cooling. They are one of the largest consumers of energy. Hospitals demand reliable and resilient energy solutions and backup systems. Energy demand reduction initiatives involving lighting and temperature control may also improve patient care.
