  • How Utilities and Consumers Can Join Forces to Power the Sustainable Future
    on 4th February 2019 at 11:27 am

    Since 1996, the World Bank reports we have massively reduced our energy consumption per capita from 3879kg to 2775kg oil equivalent. However, since 2014 progress has plateaued somewhat, and with some ways towards meeting minimum environmental goals, we have taken all the easiest steps towards greater efficiency and the need to shift our attention to significant minimal gains. Initiatives from the smart meter roll out to environmental levies peron suppliers are bringing attention to the way we generate and consume energy. Meanwhile in the retail sector, ‘all green’ energy tariffs from the likes of Bulb and Ovo are gaining market share. […]
