Efficiency First: The Road to Electrification
Electrification is at the heart of net zero planning for many energy intensive businesses across the UK. Switching power generation from fossil fuels to renewable sources allows businesses to unlock lower energy costs and reduced carbon emissions, in line with their corporate commitments. Yet, according to On-Site Energy, companies would be best served by considering the multiple renewable routes to net zero and not rush into significant investment decisions before considering all the impacts and alternative strategies.
Businesses should be proactive and flexible and look at alternative green solutions with the ethos of maximising their carbon reductions whilst also remaining competitive within their respective industries. Such solutions could include making infrastructure upgrades, heat upgrading through heat pump technology or other mechanical techniques and accessing piped hydrogen or generating hydrogen onsite.
Businesses should also consult industry experts who have experience in fulfilling decarbonisation projects from start to finish to guide them on their future investment strategies. Working with a third-party technology solutions provider can provide your business with the insight and expertise it needs to reach its net zero goals. Their knowledge of innovative, new technology and financial funding arrangements can provide you with new ways of thinking that will help your business to maximise its energy and financial efficiency as it strives towards net zero.
