In terms of energy consumption, few industries face as many challenges as the construction sector due to its extensive use of resources. The UK’s buildings create almost half of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions due to previous inefficient practices and heating systems which are unfit for purpose, potentially accumulating up to 70% of the energy they produce, lost.

We work with operators across construction to address their concerns on energy consumption and help them – and our communities – to work towards a more sustainable future.

As a vital cog in the machine of UK business, the construction industry’s performance and prospects are a strong indicator of how well the country’s economy is performing. But, as a sector which has a huge demand for energy resources, it faces many challenges facing in working more efficiently and cost effectively.

The resources which the quarrying industry produces play a key role, providing material to the wider construction sector to build roads, bridges and buildings, supporting a range of manufacturing processes and delivering essential minerals to the agriculture sector.

With material being produced at more than 2,000 mine and quarry sites across the UK, the challenge for the industry is to tackle its energy consumption, improve its efficiency and reduce its carbon emissions – figures from the Carbon Trust show that process heating and drying comprises about 40% of the energy used in UK industry while motors and drives  account for nearly two thirds of electricity consumed.

We support some of the country’s leading operators to support them in lowering production costs, reduce the amount of waste they produce and create a better, more comfortable working environment for their staff.

By involving our experts at an early design stage, we can advise you on how to embed renewable technologies in your projects, helping deliver more efficient, cost-effective buildings.
