    Why go Net Zero?

    The UK has pledged to achieve Net Zero carbon emissions by 2050 and the Government has recognized the significant contribution UK business needs to make to turn carbon ambition into carbon action.

    In a recent YouGov poll, 2/3 of adults think the UK should strive to be a global leader on climate action. In another survey 8 out of 10 Trident customers think maintaining a focus on sustainability & Net Zero will stand their business in good stead for a quicker recovery post-Covid-19.

    Customers want to know what businesses are doing to help solve the climate problem. Achieving a standard offers you the opportunity to promote your commitment to Net-Zero and adds value to your business.

    Net Zero Implementation

    Trident has joined forces with a range of approved Net-Zero implementation partners from on-site heat generators to carbon offsetting providers.

    Net Zero Implementation - Combined Heat & Power (CHP)

    Combined Heat & Power (CHP)

    Combined Heat and Power (CHP) is a process that captures and utilises the waste heat produced by the electricity generation process.

    Net Zero Implementation - Battery storage

    Battery storage

    Provides better control of your energy usage and gives offers numerous benefits for decarbonisation.

    Net Zero Implementation - Solar PV

    Solar PV

    Switching to a green energy supply is an integral part of any Net Zero strategy. Solar PV is now a cost-effective way of generating your own.

    Net Zero Implementation - Wind Generation

    Wind Generation

    If you have the space, Wind is a completely clean and renewable energy source.

    Net Zero Implementation - Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS)

    Building Energy Management Systems (BEMS)

    BEMS monit​or and control services such as heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, ensuring the building operates at maximum levels of efficiency removing wasted ​​​​energy usage and associated costs.

    Net Zero Implementation - EV Charging

    EV Charging

    With all new vehicles to be electric by 2030, developing your EV capacity is essential to support your staff shift to electric vehicles.

    Net Zero Implementation - Air source Heat Pumps

    Air source Heat Pumps

    Can provide both heating and cooling and deliver 30% carbon savings compared to a gas boiler.

    Net Zero Implementation - Ground Source Heat Pumps

    Ground Source Heat Pumps

    Similar to air source heat pumps but uses the heat from the ground instead. Requires space and excavation work.

    Voltage Optimisation

    Voltage Optimisation

    Reduces the voltage of the incoming supply to an optimum level. Can be used in most settings and delivers financial savings with a solid ROI.

    Power Factor Correction

    Power Factor Correction

    Power Factor Correction (PFC) is an energy-saving technology. Through improved energy efficiency, PFC can reduce electricity costs by eliminating Reactive Power Charges.

    Net Zero Implementation - Carbon Offsetting

    Carbon Offsetting

    Carbon offset schemes allow companies to invest in environmental projects that sequester CO₂e out of the atmosphere in order to compensate for emissions made elsewhere.

    Net Zero Implementation - Corporate PPA / GPA’s

    Corporate PPA / GPA’s

    PPA’s & GPA’s allow companies to purchase their green energy directly from a generator securing a green supply for years to come.

    Waste Heat to Energy (WtE)

    Waste Heat to Energy (WtE)

    WtE captures heat created from processes and converts into either power or thermal units and provides significant carbon and cost savings. WtE captures heat created from processes and converts into either power or thermal units and provides significant carbon and cost savings.

    Refrigeration

    Refrigeration

    Refrigeration is a significant contributor to GHG emissions from the use of electricity and the leakage of Hydrofluorocarbons. Consider upgrading to more efficient equipment and using lower emission refrigerants.

    Variable Speed Drives

    Variable Speed Drives

    Reduces the speed and torque of the motor to more closely match the environment and requirements of the process, rather than running at full speed all the time – reduces the amount of electricity and carbon used.

    Net Zero Implementation - LED

    LED

    Upgrading your lighting to LED’s offers a quick and easy way to reduce your carbon and delivers significant savings and ROI.
