Forget a white Christmas: this one was greener than ever before. The Guardian reported in a recent article that the energy used over Christmas 2016 was obtained from 40% renewable sources.
Sources of renewable energy include wind power, solar energy and hydroelectric technology. In the past, investing in these and other forms of renewable energy was perceived as too expensive by many people. This encouraging news shows that modern-day renewable energy technologies can supply a significant proportion of the UK’s energy requirements.
The figure of 40% is a marked increase from 25% in Christmas 2015, indicating a clear shift from reliance on fossil fuels. Technology used in wind turbines is much more affordable now than in years gone by. This is crucial to the success of green energy production as sources must always be efficient and cost effective for application to be feasible on a wider scale.
Kimpton offer a range of services based on renewable energy technology. If you are interested in minimising your building’s carbon footprint, we offer a full service from conceptual design right through to installation. With our expertise and vast experience within the sector, Kimpton can give you and your facility a greener future.
Our services include installing biomass boilers to provide more efficient heat sources, implementing rainwater harvesting systems and using fossil fuel technology in a more responsible way with combined heat and power systems.
Using technologies such as these, we can help you reduce the impact your building has on the environment both locally and globally. In the past, many critics thought that renewable energy sources would never prove to be a sufficient replacement for fossil fuels. However, modern technology makes them not only a great choice for the environment but also have the potential to save you money on things like heating costs and utility bills.
