Lighting, Energy and the Environment

Energy use and our environment are inexorably linked. No matter how hard we try, using innovative efficient new luminaire designs and controls, an installation will always have a carbon footprint. But, how much energy is used in the production of luminaires adding to that carbon footprint? One light can indirectly produce one tonne of CO2 per annum from its energy […]

Batteries Need Batteries: the Case for Energy Storage in EV Charging Infrastructure

The rapid take-up in electric vehicles (EVs) amongst the general public and company vehicle fleets alike presents a significant challenge for grid infrastructure. Energy storage can and is providing support services to grid-constrained sites across the network in a variety of locations. These solutions can vary in size but don’t necessary need to be megawatt-sized. In fact, batteries of 100s […]

Energy Saving with VSDs in a Digital Age

Variable speed drives are celebrating their 50th birthday this year. While the fundamental principle of a VSD remains the same – to regulate the speed of an AC induction motor – unsurprisingly the technology has moved on. So much so that practically every job function with an interest in the energy bill of a company can benefit from a VSD. […]
