Renewable energy is created using renewable sources, such as the wind or sun. It is considered renewable or sustainable because of the zero carbon emissions it produces. For example, fossil fuels are burnt to create traditional energy, this creates huge amounts of carbon emissions and harms the environment. However, when a renewable energy source such as the wind is used, there is no carbon released during the production of this energy, meaning it is carbon neutral and has caused no harm to the environment.
Some types of renewable energy are, Solar, Wind, Hydroelectricity, Geothermal, and Biomass. All of these have their benefits and drawbacks, but some are much better suited to implement into your business.
Solar power can be used by businesses who don’t mind adding solar panels either to their roof or surrounding area. These panels create a renewable energy source which will eventually pay for its own installation and then some, it also creates energy independence, meaning you will be much less worried about energy price increases and drops.
Securing an energy contract with a supplier who offers renewable energy is another great way to implement sustainability into your business and combat climate change. This is much less hassle than installing renewable technology into your land and can be a much simpler implementation process overall. However, this takes away the energy independence aspect, as depending on your contract type, you may be paying more when price increases come along.
There are more benefits to renewable energy than just reducing your carbon footprint and energy bills. Firstly, renewable energy is less likely to experience sudden price increases, with the spikes we have seen in recent years, this is a great way to keep in control, however, with energy storage issues in the UK, this means renewable energy is not immune to prices rising and falling over time.
Secondly, you will be exempt from the Climate Change Levy (CCL), this is a government-imposed tax which encourages businesses in the UK to adopt renewable energy, become more energy efficient and reduce their carbon emissions. Thirdly, you could create another source of income, as generating your own energy can create a surplus, result in the ability to sell this back to the grid. Finally, you will have access to energy subsidies, which are exclusive for businesses which reduce their energy usage and become more sustainable.
We offer the best-suited renewable energy solution for your business. We take a deep dive into the feasibility, future needs, and financial possibilities to find the perfect solution. Every business is unique and wants to make the switch in different ways, so we take all of this into account to help you propel your business towards net-zero.
The switch to renewable energy will eventually become a mandatory one for all businesses in the UK. So, taking steps towards net-zero as early as possible is a great way to make sure you are ready and prepared for the net-zero goals which are already being implemented by the government. The implementation of new technologies and renewable energy contracts can take time and resources, so taking these steps as early as possible is imperative.
We can help provide a wide range of renewable solutions, Solar PV/water heating, wind, air/ground source heat pumps, battery storage, geothermal and energy from waste. Nothing is out of scope when you work with DBS. Your unique business may not be suited to fit a certain type of solution, that’s why we take a deep dive into your feasibility and find the perfect fit for your business.
Allowing the experts at DBS to manage your renewable projects makes sure you realise every benefit, are kept informed every step of the way and will be 100% satisfied with the result. The installation and project management couldn’t be in better hands while you sit back and reap the rewards.
With access to everything in relation to renewables and green energy, let us help you be that little bit greener.
