Series 12 – Episode 1 – Testing for the environment

14th April 2023

Mick Elliott, Contributing Editor, speaks with Marc Sherwood, Senior Technical Sales Manager, Fluke about electric vehicles and solar energy and the new methods of testing.

Solar, wind, and geothermal energy are some of the fastest growing renewable energy resources worldwide. From grid-fed to off-grid to hybrid and backup systems, critical infrastructure must be maintained. And to lesson reliance on fossil fuels, electric vehicles are proliferating our roads. So, there is a need for electric vehicle supply equipment, including test equipment from installation to critical infrastructure maintenance.

“The world continues to make great strides in trying to become more energy efficient and Fluke want to play a very active part in this production of more sustainable and renewable green energy,” said Sherwood.

With that in mind, Fluke has launched a number of new test and measurement equipment. The first one that Sherwood talks about is a solar multifunctional tester.

“Solar is obviously the very focused subject at the moment and is making a big contribution of energy saving,” said Sherwood. “What we find at the moment is that this is realistically generating round about a third of the electrical energy coming from renewables, of which at the moment in UK they were getting roughly about 15 gigawatt hours of energy generated from roughly 500 solar farms. So, that’s very much a market that Fluke wants to be involved with.”

Sherwood goes on to talk about other new products the company has launched, the support the company offers customers, and what the response has been in the market.
