In the last 20 years, there has been a clear tendency for many governments to lower energy dependence on fossil fuels. Renewable energies are becoming more and more powerful, placing themselves at the forefront of technological innovation in companies and countries.
The energy that the sun gives us is everything. It gives us light, gives us heat, produces photosynthesis in plants... Today, solar photovoltaic energy is the most developed way to take advantage of solar energy, but can also be harnessed by solar thermal energy.
China, the United States, Germany, Spain have all invested heavily in wind energy in recent years. Another source of renewable energy that has much to do with the sun, wind energy is not only beneficial to the environment but is the engine of the economy.
It is the most energy-efficient renewable energy. It is a clean energy that can be transformed to very different scales through, for example, mini hydroelectric plants.
We are a company committed to the environment, but we are aware that respecting the environment, biodiversity and the people who live in it is not a job for a few but instead a responsibility of everyone. That's why we propose certain actions for being a 'Responsible Citizen'.
Turning off the tap while we do not use it when brushing our teeth or scrubbing dishes, fixing a dripping faucet or showering instead of bathing are simple gestures that help save water. Also companies and administrations can do a lot. Do not wait for shortages to save. It's up to you to make sure there's no shortage of water for anyone.
Natural Gas is increasingly becoming an alternative to classic liquid fuels. It is clean and cheap and numerous cities have an increasing number of service stations where compressed natural gas (CNG) is offered.
We all like to feel fresh at home and at work but it is not necessary to put the air "on max" and then have wear sweaters. We can lower the thermostat a little so that there is a reasonable balance between comfort and electric expense. Although at times somewhat subjective, the recommended comfort temperature is usually estimated at around 21 ° C. Regulate the thermostat of your air at this temperature and you will see how you save.
There is no doubt that the world needs energy to function. Good management of current energy systems, the use of new technologies and the efficient and sustainable use of the planet's resources will ensure the energy of the future.
With the correct use of modern building materials and new technologies (internet, cell phones and tablets), we are achieving increasingly energy-efficient buildings. With a good design you can achieve energy savings up to 50%.
Recycling may seem like a nuisance but it brings numerous benefits to the environment and to ourselves. At the same time that recycling reduces the dumping of waste into the environment, it is used as raw material to manufacture many new things. In other words, we benefit twice... But, what is made with what we recycle Look here.
The "smart city", sometimes also called "efficient city" or "super-efficient city", refers to a type of urban development based on sustainability that is able to respond adequately to the basic needs of institutions, enterprises, and the inhabitants themselves, both economically, as well as in operational, social and environmental aspects.
