The benefits of renewables, smart energy and storage solutions
Renewables offer a natural source of energy with no carbon emissions. When they are used to provide electricity or heat on a small scale, the process is referred to as ‘microgeneration’. Using technology like solar panels, wind turbines, ground source heat pumps, and wood pellet boilers can dramatically reduce householders’ and businesses’ energy consumption and fuel bills. Furthermore, extensive government funding, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive, is available for those wishing to switch to renewable energy.
Smart energy involves the use of technology, such as mobile phones and tablets, to enhance communications between building energy systems and users, as well as between individual appliances. Combined with lower cost energy storage batteries and onsite microgeneration, this helps energy systems run more efficiently. As a result, significant reductions in fuel bills are possible without the need for changes in lifestyle.
