This article looks at how UK businesses can save water in the workplace by reducing day-to-day consumption and implementing water reuse strategies to reduce bills and improve environmental performance.
Whether plumbing systems are used at home or at work, each winter brings with it sub-zero temperatures and the risk of frozen pipes and the damage that it can bring.
As soon as the mercury in the thermometer dips below zero, there is the possibility that your pipes might freeze, landing you with a big bill for fixing them, and a mess to clear-up when the temperature rises again and they start to thaw out.
This technical guide explains the concept of district heating and how such heat distribution networks can be used to deliver significant eco-friendly, energy efficient heating solutions for both domestic and commercial occupiers.
The guide explains what district heating is, how it works, current trends and opportunities for adoption. It concludes by considering both the benefits and drawbacks of this type of centralised heating system.
This guide looks at simple ways of introducing water savings for UK businesses.

The world is facing some serious economic and environmental challenges that will impact us all. Building a cleaner, greener economy will be essential for our future… and to do this will require a whole host of measures including reductions in energy intensity, improving energy efficiencies, switching to cleaner greener fuels and securing more sustainable energy supplies, to name but a few. This presentation looks at the measures now being taken to build the UK’s low carbon economy, what’s required, and how the UK is leading the world in this important area.
The following presentation takes a look at a renewable energy for business case study involving a UK chemical company based in Newport, South Wales. It looks at how they became more energy efficient, generating their own energy and even exporting electricity back to the grid.
The following presentation takes a look how the UK is becoming a leading low carbon economy, generating renewable energy with the application of emerging technologies to create the UK’s clean energy of the future. Developing world-class technologies including solar power, biofuels, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and on and off shore wind energy the UK is leading the world in this important area of renewable energy generation.
