As an electrical engineering company which spends a lot of time working on renewable energy projects, we’re always keen to hear how we can make our own organisation more sustainable. And, while awareness of our carbon footprint is not a new concept, attitudes towards the environment have changed significantly over the last 10 years.
Last month, managing director of Smith Brothers, Dave Ogden, spoke to Electrical Engineering magazine to take a look at the various options available for sustainable connections – and the advantages of the alternatives. In case you missed it, you can catch up, below.
Electrical engineering firm, Smith Brothers Contracting Ltd, has connected two solar farms to the grid – collectively generating up to 65MW of clean energy for the UK.
Merry Christmas everyone! 2020 has been a year of many challenges, but before we turn to leave it in the past, we thought we would take one last look over the last 12 months.
2020 has been a tough year for everyone, but it’s also helped to shine a light on the importance of health and wellbeing. That’s why we thought it was important to talk about our investment into life-saving technology.
This year has been a real challenge for everyone, but we thought we could try and have a little bit of fun as we enter the last few weeks of 2020 by enlisting the help of the young people within the Smith Brothers family – to create our newest colleague!
It doesn’t take much to get the team at Smith Brothers HQ in the festive spirit, but this year we’re even more enthusiastic about the season ahead. Not because 2020 has been a year to forget – but because we’re doing ‘our bit’ to help a very worthy cause.
In line with the government’s latest energy targets, we have carbon reduction and power saving at the forefront of our activity here at Smith Brothers – and are constantly looking for new ways to help customers save money via energy reduction schemes.
