The political wind has been blowing towards complete rail electrification for decades now without significant progress, so it’s clearly not a straightforward problem to tackle. If it’s to be done, it needs be done right. Steve Hughes, MD of REO UK, explains the importance of ensuring the components underpinning electric trains are carefully considered.

With global data traffic more than doubling every four years, it’s no surprise that the environmental impact of data centres is coming under scrutiny. Simone Bruckner, managing director of power resistor manufacturer Cressall Resistors, investigates the efficiency of our data centres.

As the demand for power increases in the UK across growing domestic and industrial markets including the nuclear industry, so the need for reliable power generation, transmission, and distribution using Medium Voltage (MV) cables has risen with it. Graham Turner of AEI Cables looks at the future.

Contributing editor Jordan O’Brien takes a look into the increasing demand for electric vehicles in the UK.

In recent years, renewable energy options have become much more efficient and feasible, which has led to a large adoption of these applications. However, just like all other power generation methods, these applications require resistors. Cressall's Simone Bruckner explains the challenges in designing resistors for renewable applications.

Could immersion cooling be the key to superfast charging and a reduction in range anxiety? Mark Lashbrook, technical manager at M&I Materials, gives us his insight.

Remote monitoring is an essential tool to optimise a building’s infrastructure. Here, Resource Data Management discusses how integrating a comprehensive remote monitoring strategy for HVACR assets into the management of any facility can increase its efficiency and reduce operating costs. 

In an increasingly digitised world, Stewart Gregory, VP of Power Products at Schneider Electric, warns why electrical contractors must mind the innovation gap.
