Leaders in sustainable
Solar Ready is an award winning British manufacturer leading the development of sustainable energy technology into the global market place. Our technology reduces the power required in everyday devices and provides unrivalled performance versus any other energy storage solution and distribution product.
With energy prices constantly been driven upward and the government demanding that manufacturing companies come up with new and improved energy efficient solutions. The topic of energy management and the deployment of “new” technologies has risen to the very top of the business agenda.
Creating sustainable energy management strategies and ensuring that businesses are able to reduce costs through the deployment of specialist technologies in business critical areas is driving change across all manufacturing organisations. By taking advantage of the fact that manufacturing is, now more than ever, truly moving into the future, industry professionals are driving board level discussion in the innovative ways you can invest in new high efficiency low energy solutions to create an all-round energy efficient business.
Property & FM
Buildings account for 37% of the UK’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The UK’s buildings must become more energy efficient to meet the UK’s 2050 carbon reduction targets in an affordable way. Buildings in the commercial sector have an important role to play, accounting for 10% of the UK’s GHG emissions overall. However, there are other gains to be had from the commercial sector investing in energy efficiency measures, such as countering and reducing the effect of volatile energy costs, increasing business competitiveness, reducing overall UK energy demand and increasing the UK’s energy security.
Against this backdrop commercial property owners and property FM companies are increasingly been challenged to deliver true savings and strategies that will bring their property portfolios into line with Government targets. This can only be achieved by a combination of utilising low energy solutions and Renewable Energy systems.
Retail & Logistics
Carbon is clearly the strongest driver for environmental sustainability across the retail and Logistics sector, at this time. Packaging, waste, energy management and the wellbeing agenda are also prioritised by retailers, but carbon management and reduction come in at, or near the top, for all. This prioritisation is undoubtedly influenced by the fact that all retailers and haulage companies have or are expecting legislation to come their way. And most companies are able to realise cost savings associated with a reduction in carbon intensity.
Strategies to deliver emissions reductions differ across the retail landscape and in response to regulatory requirements. Key focus areas are the reduction of in-store energy use, logistics consolidation and managing down emissions from own-brand manufacturing. Technology to meet these needs is proliferating across this sector with companies deploying the very latest, state of the art energy saving solutions.
Travel & Leisure
Air travel and the energy consumption of the properties operated by hospitality enterprises are the two most energy-intensive aspects in the travel and leisure industry. Energy management for hotels, golf clubs, health centres or entertainment complexes is particularly difficult, as optimising the experience for the customers means providing well-heated, comfortable premises, 24-hour-access, entertainment and high-tech equipment. The stakes are high – for instance, for a sports centre, energy costs are second only to labour costs accounting for as much as 30% of total running costs – that’s a higher number than in most other industries.
According to Carbon Trust, committing to only a 10% improvement in the management of energy use, UK leisure facilities could save up to £70M each year and drastically reduce carbon emissions. Consequently there has been major moves to the adoption of high efficiency, low energy solutions that reduce consumption and greatly reduce costs to a business’s bottom line.
