Mitie Works with Vodafone UK to Reduce its Carbon Footprint

Mitie has supported Vodafone UK in reducing its carbon footprint, saving 100 gigawatt hours of energy, equivalent to 25,000 tonnes of CO2, in just three years. The energy saved could power a town with a population of 65,000 people for a year and represents a financial saving of around £10 million.

Gold Fields' Granny Smith Mine Renewable Microgrid Complete

Gold Fields' Granny Smith Mine Renewable Microgrid Complete

The new hybrid power system, which has been integrated with Aggreko's existing gas fired power station, is powered by more than 20,000 solar panels and supported by a 2 MW/1 MWh battery system. Once fully operational, it will reduce the mine's fuel consumption by 10-13% - the equivalent of removing 2,000 cars from the road.

Smart City Energy Independence: Water Power Contribution

Smart City Energy Independence: Water Power Contribution

Hydro power from rivers is the largest zero-emission electricity producer but it is not usually in cities. In addition, it is becoming rather discredited because rivers dry up and the dams cannot be redeployed, they flood trees and vegetation which generates methane - a severe global warmer.
