Due to a combination of factors, including the continuous increase of energy consumption, extreme weather, and the restructuring of the energy network as the energy transition progresses, the cost of energy is increasing, threatening the bottom line of many companies with increases of up to 40% being announced.
This free seminar in Sheffield will explore how smart energy solutions and technologies, such as voltage optimisation and smart transformers, are proven and effective in reducing energy consumption. Additionally, the remote monitoring aspect of smart transformers allows for further energy optimisations to be realised and can lead to the implementation of a holistic energy management system which enables a cycle of continuous improvement to energy use.
The aforementioned energy rise threat is further complicated by the fact that companies can’t simply cut energy, because the rise of technology epitomised by Industry 4.0 means that both customer expectations and shareholder needs require a high usage of energy in order to be met. The costs of high energy use are further compounded by Governmental aims for the UK to become a low carbon economy and with this comes sanctions and financial penalties for organisations which use more carbon-intensive forms of energy as opposed to the cleaner sources which the Government aim to normalise.
However, there are ways in which companies can optimise their energy to recover cost savings and ensure that their reputation as an environmentally friendly company remains intact. This can be done through investment in leading-edge smart energy technologies.
As the UK’s energy landscape transitions to increase sustainability and minimise carbon emissions, it is of upmost importance that companies understand how their critical infrastructure is operating. The importance of this is emphasised by the fact that an integral part of that infrastructure, distribution transformers, continues to be overlooked and left in the dark as technology progresses. Powerstar’s super low loss smart transformer, SO-LO, is integrated with remote monitoring to provide 24/7 visibility of a companies critical infrastructure, enabling issues to be identifies before an event occurs through a complex and constant set of system checks and alert options, as well as highlighting importance performance information that can be utilised to drive further efficiency measures.
Join Powerstar in Sheffield on Thursday, 06th December, 2018 at 9:00am for a seminar focused on how smart energy solutions can help your company negate the effect of energy price rises whilst delivering valuable insights into energy usage and minimising carbon emissions.
The seminar will also discuss the benefits of implementing such technologies, like conditioning, optimising, and stabilising the incoming power supply to reduce the voltage to a level that closely matches the requirements of on-site electrical equipment, and how companies can reduce critical infrastructure maintenance costs by providing insights into the performance of their assets.
