Sustainable and Green Energy

Sustainable energy is the sustainable provision of energy that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Technologies that promote sustainable energy include renewable energy sources, such as Solar Energy, Wind Energy, Tidal Power, Hydroelectricty and other technologies designed to improve energy efficiency.

Solar Energy is the radiant light and heat from the sun and technologies include Solar Heating, Solar Photovoltaic’s, Solar Thermal Electricity and Solar Architecture, which can make considerable contributions to solving some of the most urgent problems the world now faces.

Wind Power is the conversion of wind energy into a useful form of energy.  For instance using Wind Turbines to make electrical power, Windmills for mechanical power, Wind pumps for water pumping or drainage, or Sails to propel ships.

Tidal Power, also called Tidal Energy, is a form of hydropower that converts the energy of tides into useful forms of power – mainly electricity.

Hydroelectricity is the term referring to electricity generated by hydropower; the production of electrical power through the use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water.

Biofuel is a type of fuel whose energy is derived from biological carbon fixation. Biofuels include fuels derived from biomass conversion, as well as solid biomass, liquid fuels and various biogases.  Biofuels are gaining increased public and scientific attention, driven by factors such as oil price hikes and the need for increased energy security.

Metricab has for a number of years been assisting Clients to develop solutions and deliver successful energy projects.  Our team of Designers and Engineers can offer advice on delivering technically and commercially successful sustainable energy projects, whether it’s a Biofuel power project or renewable energy strategy, Metricab are able to assist.

Competition in Connections (CIC) means that these days everyone has the option to have grid connections work (Contestable Work) carried out by a Utility Connection Provider (UCP) such as Metricab.  Metricab are authorised to carry out Contestable Work on all UK DNO networks, which in turn provides our Clients with cost saving alternatives to the services provided by the DNOs themselves.

Until they contacted Metricab, many of our Clients were not aware that they could receive revenue from the excess electricity that they will generate by their renewable technology installations, but with Metricab’s advice these Clients now export electricity back onto the National Grid network and benefit from a substantial income in this respect.
