The UK should cut carbon emissions by 57% until 2030
The UK government should commit to reducing carbon emissions by 57% until 2030, the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has recently argued.
The Committee’s report suggest that such a measure would help the country reach an 80% cut by 2050 on 1990 levels. It adds the UK has “made good progress to date” as “emissions have reduced by 36% on 1990 levels and if current policies are effective will be down by 43% – 46% in 2020”.
The paper suggests the UK should aim to heat one in seven homes using low carbon sources as well as have “the majority of new cars bought in the UK partially electric” by 2030 and adds that the country should be largely powered by low carbon sources of electricity by this time and “nearly all UK homes should have insulation installed”.
HeatingSave – delivering impressive energy savings at a very low initial cost
Energy management systems might represent a sizeable investment for any company, but the rapidly rising energy prices can actually deliver a very rapid return on investment, experts in the field have argued.
A recent paper on this topic has argued that over half of firms have appointed a senior director to manage energy spending and implement energy efficiency measures.
The range of energy saving programmes directors can vary largely, depending on the available funding, the company’s size, premises, site specifics.
However, regardless of the particular approach, directors who are serious about slashing their energy bills will need to consider retrofitting their premises in some way, whether we’re talking about putting in renewable energy measures or more complex Building Energy Management Systems.
An energy management and monitoring system can help companies stay on top of their energy usage and reduce their overall bills by running their light/heating systems in an optimum manner.
