More than bluster: controlling wind power generation
Humans have harnessed the power of the wind throughout history. From windmills and their use in food production to sailing ships that date back thousands of years, people have understood the resource that is the unseen force of the wind. And now the Earth faces the threat of climate change and the challenge to reduce global carbon emissions, once again we turn to the wind as a source of energy to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Here, Beth Ra...
Composites and renewable energy: Powering the future
Goal seven of the United Nations’ (UN) sustainable goals encourages progress towards integrating renewable energy into buildings, transport and industry. However, connecting renewable energy sources to the grid faces challenges, including the limited current capacity of overhead lines. How can we make the grid more suitable for renewable energy integration? Here, Robert Glass, Head of Marketing at Exel Composites, explains how composit...
Increasing the efficiency of solar power
Solar power is currently the UK’s third largest renewable energy generator, but inefficiency challenges its growth. Here, Simone Bruckner, Managing Director of power resistor manufacturer Cressall, has explored how solar panel efficiency can be improved to increase its supply to the grid.
Research shows new net zero model brings benefits for hotel sector

The business transformation path towards sustainability
Today’s economy has the potential to become sustainable if companies thought of the world as an island in the middle of an ocean of inhospitable space. This island, our earth, provides us fresh air to breathe, freshwater to produce enough food, and provides an abundant amount of energy to distribute food and to build all the necessary materials around us. All resources on a large island can seem abundant, but they will eventually, become co...
