Scottish Engineering has now delivered a series of informative webinars on the topic of Net Zero, all of which can be found here. In our feedback series, whilst we are sharing our learnings and findings collected when developing Scottish Engineering own roadmap and during our interactions with Scottish businesses and skill providers, we are delighted to be joined with some of our members to share their own experience, learnings and findings gathered during their Net Zero journey.
Aggreko helps its customers navigate the energy transition and reduce energy consumption, they are also reducing their own environmental impact throughout their facilities and activities. With the aim of achieving net-zero emissions by 2030, they are accelerating measures in the UK. To support this, the Glasgow-headquartered global provider of mobile, modular power, temperature control and energy services, has commenced upgrades to its multi-purpose facility in Dumbarton, with an investment totalling £4.5million. As part of Aggreko’s industry-leading Net Zero strategy, the site will turn into a future energy hub, replacing all diesel with low-emission HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil), introduce Solar PV renewable energy as well as exporting surplus power generated during production tests of Next Generation Gas gensets back to the national grid. Smart battery storage systems and LED lighting systems will also be used to make the use of energy at the facility more efficient.
We are looking forward to Iain MacLachlan, Emissions Reduction Programme Manager sharing with us their learnings and findings on their Net Zero journey to date.
Navigating Net-Zero can be a daunting prospect; therefore, we are extending the offer of tailored guidance through our free 1-2-1 sessions. Our net-zero project lead, Dr. Eric Boinard is on hand to assist SMEs to begin planning their own net-zero route map to ensure that they’re ready to play a role in Scotland’s green recovery, and take full advantage of any opportunities that may come their way. If you’d like to arrange a 1-2-1 session, please contact Eric Boinard firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss further.
