Time to power up - green energy options for caravan parks
Sustainability has become an increasingly important consideration in so many areas of our lives, and rightly so. There has never been more of a need for energy optimisation and storage solutions. With increasing global energy prices, consumer demand for products which help reduce and manage energy costs, both domestic and commercial, is growing. Did you know you can earn additional income from your surplus capacity?
The recent government announcement that Britain is to ban the sale of all petrol and diesel cars from 2040, will inevitably lead to a rapid rise in the production of electric vehicles. This in turn has led to questions about where and how these vehicles will be charged and how will the electricity be produced in a carbon friendly way. Caravan parks will undoubtedly have an important part to play, both in providing charging facilities and in the production of sustainable green energy.
We have links with a number of specialist companies who can advise on all of these aspects including energy optimisation, energy generation, energy storage and electric vehicle charging. For further information contact Lee Southan (lee.southan@ sw.co.uk or 01884 256 741)
If any of these schemes require planning permission, our planning consultant Owen Pike (owen.pike@ sw.co.uk or 0117 338 1813) has extensive experience of successfully obtaining consent for renewable energy schemes across the UK.
