Please note, this energy seminar is specific to the UK audience, and is aimed to help businesses understand how they can achieve their energy efficiency targets and identify how they will contribute to the UK net-zero by 2050 target.
Wellcome Collection, 183 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE
About the event
This seminar, taking place as the UK progresses towards its net-zero target for 2050, will focus on helping businesses assess the challenges of reaching short and long-term energy efficiency targets and minimising carbon emissions.
Businesses are challenged with how they intend to help achieve net-zero by 2050, whilst also contending with the additional energy challenges caused by winter months and the effects of climate change such as cold snaps, intermittent generation and increased electrical consumption.
contributing to uk net-zero through energy efficiency
Despite the UK leading the G20 for decarbonisation rates through a recorded 3.7% annual reduction, to achieve the UK net zero target, annual reduction levels need to be increased to 9.7%.
London is home to around 1 million businesses and is as a hub for flagship stores, head offices and large retail distribution centres, making the electrical consumption for Industrial and Commercial industries over 25,000 GWh and resulting in constrained networks and costly peak periods.
Throughout the winter months, electrical consumption escalates further due to increasingly severe and ever-changing weather patterns alongside the darker days and holiday period. Therefore, in order to achieve the necessary carbon reduction goals, businesses need to identify opportunities for their site to optimise their use of energy by minimising electrical consumption, maximising local generation and having visibility of energy intensive processes.
Powerstar offers a range of smart energy technologies which can not only provide a solution to reduce electricity costs but also provide insights through its remote monitoring capabilities to assist businesses on their journey to net-zero.
THE POWER OF RESILIENCE
Whilst accommodating the growth of electrical consumption of the capital, the National Grid is experiencing an increasing number of grid events from voltage spikes and dips to brownouts all of which cause severe disruption to the critical and sensitive operations of the businesses that it is home to.
Therefore, to contribute to net-zero, businesses must ensure they are enhancing their power resilience to avoid costly downtime, wasted resources and undoing the positive actions towards sustainability they are making in other areas.
To combat all areas, businesses can deploy energy storage solutions with full power resilience capabilities which when deployed with voltage regulation and alongside local generation, provides a robust solution for the journey towards net-zero.
If, like many other businesses, you are feeling the pressure to not only improve energy efficiency but also power resilience, register for this seminar today to learn how Powerstar can help your business.
