If EDF Energy’s analysis across 4,000 sites in the UK didn’t get the message through to you that energy efficiencies could go a long way towards reducing carbon emissions, then maybe Schneider Electric’s latest research will. The company has found that at least 117 million tons of greenhouse gases that were emitted into the atmosphere last year came from wasted energy - energy that was produced and wasted due to inefficiencies in UK buildings, or lost during the generation and transmission process. 

JTL, a national training provider for electrical, plumbing and heating apprenticeships, has officially launched its partnership with Bury College, with the Mayor of Bury himself, councillor Trevor Holt, attending the opening ceremony to celebrate the partnership. 

When Electricity North West, the DNO responsible for the administration and maintenance of the power network in the North West of England, announced its Leading the North West to zero carbon plan in March earlier this year, the company committed to emitting zero carbon emissions by 2038. It’s now showcasing that commitment by purchasing two electric JCBs. 

Living with cancer is gruelling, whether you are the cancer sufferer or a relative, friend or colleague. Life with cancer can be even tougher when it is your two-year-old son who has been diagnosed with cancerous germ cell tumours. This was the case for the Smith family, who contacted the Electrical Industries Charity after Gareth Smith was advised by his employer, a small electrical contractor, to reach out to the charity for assistance when his son, Freddie, was diagnosed with germ cell tumours in September 2017. 

More than 4,000 schools, hospitals and businesses could benefit from simple energy efficiency changes that could save 147,671 tonnes of carbon per year and net £45 million in savings. That’s according to EDF Energy, which conducted research on 4,150 sites in the UK, and found that the average organisation could achieve a total saving of as much as £46,316 per year.
