Over three quarters of senior utilities leaders have concerns that a lack of robust data about the sustainability of internal and supply chain operations will hamper delivery of net zero transition goals, according to new research conducted by Utility Week.
DNOs regularly publish Distribution Future Energy Scenarios, but these often overlook the developing complexity on the low voltage networks. As UW Innovate reports, WPD has now devised a new methodology, called EPIC, to capture data from local authorities and use it for more sensitive and localised analysis.
The circular economy is being increasingly mentioned but what exactly is it and what does it mean? What is its relevance to those operating in the water industry and how can it help them cut costs and be greener at the same time? This is the first of a series of articles from the BPF Pipes Group taking a closer look at understanding the circular economy and using as an example the role of plastic pipes within it. The series explains why we as an industry should take notice of its growing importance.
As part of our Countdown to COP focus on decarbonisation of heat, ENA’s Matt Hindle gives his view on the role hydrogen will have to play. He also reviews some key projects aimed at bringing hydrogen into the home.
