To reach the governments targets set in the Climate Change Act, Net Zero Solutions should be explored, including:
- Green Electricity Supply – A green electricity tariff supplies electricity to a become from a renewable source. This allows for a company to reduce their overall scope 2 emissions as a green supply doesn’t produce C02.
- Solar Energy - Solar technologies convert sunlight into electrical energy either through photovoltaic (PV) panels or through mirrors that concentrate solar radiation. This energy can be used to generate electricity or be stored in batteries or thermal storage.
- LED Lighting – LED lighting produces less waste light and more useful lumens than other lighting technologies. If you replaced all the lighting in your office, school or other facility with LEDs, you could see as much as a 60% to 70% improvement in your overall energy efficiency.
- Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) – HVO is a paraffinic bio-based liquid fuel originating from many kinds of vegetable oils. HVO can be used in conventional diesel engines as a renewable alternative.
- Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) – An ASHP absorbs heat from the outside air to an indoor space. ASHP’s can be 300-400% efficient and lower your overall carbon footprint.
- Building Fabric – Improving a buildings fabric will reduce heat loss and the overall energy consumption used to heat the space. Upgrading insulation and installing appropriate controls can save businesses money and help cut carbon emissions.
- Solar Shading - Solar shading, is a form of solar control that can be used to optimise the amount of solar heat gain and visible light that is admitted into a building. This can have a significant impact on the energy use of a building as well as on the thermal and visual comfort of occupants and ultimately reduce cooling demand.
- Electric Vehicle’s (EV’s)- An EV uses no fossil fuels and produces a small form of emissions. The use of EV’s can help a company reduce their overall Scope 1 emissions.
- Carbon Literacy - Carbon Literacy is the knowledge and capacity required to create a positive shift on how the workforce lives, works, and behaves in response to climate change. Organisations that have a Carbon Literate workforce can be accredited by the Project team as a ‘Carbon Literate Organisation’ (CLO).
- Voluntary Carbon Markets - Voluntary carbon markets allow carbon emitters to offset their unavoidable emissions by purchasing carbon credits emitted by projects targeted at removing or reducing GHG from the atmosphere.
CarbonFIT is built around the FIT process, Footprint, Improvement, Track and Translate, whereby we establish baseline Carbon Footprints to determine challenging but realistic Science-Based Targets and devise Net Zero Action Plans with robust KPI’s and associated timelines.
We provide Low Carbon Energy & Legislation Compliance, such as ESOS (Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme) and SECR (Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting). More recently the company has expanded further by developing CarbonFIT – a dedicated program and online platform designed to support organisations with their Carbon Reduction Plans and roadmap individual pathways to Net Zero.
