TLGEC Renewable Energy: Solar PV, Battery Storage & EV Charging in Kent, Sussex, Surrey, London & Surrounding Areas


Greenest Year Ever for UK Electricity in 2017

According to the National Grid figures, reported by the BBC recently, the UK broke energy records in 2017!

For the first time, wind, nuclear and solar power generated more than gas and coal combined in June last year breaking 13 clean energy records. Since 2012, Britain has halved it’s carbon emissions and is now the 4th cleanest power system in Europe and the 7th Worldwide.

Separate findings from power research group MyGridGB show that renewable energy sources provided more power than coal for 90% of 2017.

What’s still left to do?

Despite breaking records, the UK must now build on these successes to meet emission targets and in particular, one of the areas we need to focus on is, reducing our gas outputs in homes and businesses. If we don’t reduce this gas use, we will be susceptible to Gas price rises again, and we also dangerously exposed to supply risks too.

According to an energy spokesman, the UK is reducing emissions faster than any other G7 country including the US, Japan, Germany and France and also added that the government has plans to reduce carbon emissions throughout the 2020’s, creating well-paid jobs in the low carbon sector. He also stated that the UK is a world leader in clean growth.

At TLGEC, we’re working to bring affordable and efficient renewable energy products to the local area, which include:

In addition to this, and as outlined in our previous post, there are things we can all do to help make 2018 even greener, such as:

  • Walking to work instead of driving
  • Getting an electric car
  • Changing to energy efficient light bulbs
  • Reducing the amount of water we use
  • Be mindful of electricity use at home and at work
  • Investing in Solar PV panels and Battery Storage

Our team has a 40-year experience in the renewable industry and we continue to invest to provide even better energy efficient products and services.
