The UK has announced that they will be following the emissions reduction targets set out in Paris, with a new law passed, The Climate Change Act 2008 (2050 Target Amendment) Order 2019 details how this country plans on decreasing its greenhouse gas footprint by at least 50% before 2030 and pursuing net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. Businesses will be heavily taxed if they do not follow the steps necessary to cut down on pollution. This is in addition to the carbon tax that has been put in place, which raised the price of petrol and diesel by over 25%. The government is also investing billions of pounds into renewable energy sources like wind, solar and hydro power. All of these measures are necessary in order to keep the Earth from reaching a tipping point where the damage caused by climate change is irreversible and some believe we are nearly there. With the UK leading the way, other countries may soon follow suit and make similar commitments to reducing their emissions.
How can UKO Energy help you?
UKO Energy benefit you by using technology that does not produce emissions, essentially meaning that it takes away some of the burdens from businesses that may not be able to meet these ambitious goals. It is done through the methodology of self-generation at zero capital cost, zero maintenance cost and zero indexation. UKO Energy will be able to fund the technology so there is no capital cost required from the customer.
We know it's a race against time, but with Net-Zero technology like ours - we can help you achieve your targets.
Outstanding Energy Sourcing and Project Management
UKO Energy will always leave in a grid connection and where feasible we may even install groundbreaking battery storage systems. This is all subject to a site survey during which we will make a full assessment.
Typically, we would consider solar or wind power energy options, but subject to the assessment we may consider the wide range of systems available to us, in order to ensure that we are providing the most favourable option to meet your requirements.
Once we have agreed on a tailored effective solution with you, we will embrace the entirety of the project, through the design, build and commissioning stages, and most importantly, we will fund it for you. This means that there is zero capital cost to you.
Once the system is commissioned and fully operational, you will automatically benefit from a reliable power supply, generated from a sustainable source, and supplied just to you at a long-term fixed price.
With a practical approach to cost-saving and an educated technical approach to energy and the wider environment, UKO Energy is dedicated to helping you to minimise both costs and your carbon footprint.
Emissions - Scope 1, 2 & 3 Explained
Net-zero carbon reduction can be achieved through a variety of means, but the most important thing is to focus on reducing emissions in all three scopes. Scope 1 emissions are those that come directly from a company's own activities. Scope 2 emissions are indirect emissions that result from the purchase of electricity or heat from another provider. Scope 3 emissions are all other indirect emissions that occur upstream or downstream of a company's own operations, such as business travel or the disposal of waste. Reducing emissions in all three scopes is essential for achieving net-zero carbon reduction. In Scope 1, companies can invest in energy efficiency measures. In Scope 2, a company can use our renewable energy technology and in Scope 3, they can encourage their suppliers and partners to adopt sustainable practices. Net-zero carbon reduction is an ambitious goal, but it is achievable if we work together to reduce emissions in all three scopes.
We are Dedicated to Helping you
Net-zero carbon reduction is a daunting task for any business, but UKO Energy is here to help. We understand that it's not possible or realistic for every business to achieve net-zero overnight. That's why we've developed a three-phase approach to help businesses in their journey to sustainability.
Phase 1, we will provide you with renewable energy technologies. This could include anything from solar panels, wind turbines and hydropower.
Phase 2, we'll assist you in implementing energy efficiency measures. This could involve anything from insulating your buildings to swapping out old equipment for more energy-efficient models.
Phase 3, we'll help you recognise and offset all other indirect emissions. This could involve working with your suppliers and partners to adopt sustainable practices or investing in carbon offset projects. No matter where you are on your journey to net-zero, UKO Energy is here to help. This comes with an audit to underwrite the certification of PAS2060 with our independent partner.
What Happens Next?
Net-zero carbon reduction is a daunting task, but it's one that we must commit to if we want to preserve our planet for future generations. The first step is to make the commitment, then head on to ENQUIRE NOW and submit your Pre-Qualification form. This will allow us to start by providing you with a scheme design to determine the renewable technology and how much energy your site can generate. In addition, we will be able to provide you with your current net-zero carbon footprint report. From there, we can develop a plan of action to help you reach your goal of net-zero carbon reduction. So don't delay, commit today!
What are the Benefits?
Net-Zero Buildings are certified through the PAS 2060 process to have reduced their carbon footprint and achieved Net-Zero status. The certification process for Net-Zero Buildings is voluntary and helps to showcase leadership in environmental design and performance. It also allows owners and developers to differentiate their properties in the marketplace, which can lead to increased tenant satisfaction, lower vacancy rates, and higher rents. Certification to PAS 2060 is given to the building owner or developer to proudly display at the entrance of the building. This plaque indicates that the building has met the highest standards of environmental performance and is a Net-Zero Building. UKO Energy is proud to help our clients achieve Net-Zero Carbon status through our comprehensive services. We will work with you to develop a plan that meets your specific needs and goals, and we will provide ongoing support to ensure that you maintain Net-Zero status. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you achieve Net-Zero Carbon certification.
Together, we can work towards reducing your carbon footprint and doing our part to reach Net-Zero by 2050.
