Exciting things ahead – we’re joining the Net-Zero revolution in more ways than one.
The UK government has called for collective commitment to cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 and to reach ‘net-zero’ by 2050.
As a reliable power quality, grid code compliance and grid connection consultancy and solutions provider for large energy consumers and generators, we have had our eye on making electricity usage more efficient and reducing emissions. We want to make sure we’re doing our bit to cut carbon in more ways than one.
What will we be doing?
On top of our own SME Climate Pledge and increased implementation of energy from renewable sources, we want our friends utilising a large amount of energy to know that they’ll have a trusted partner to help them achieve lower emissions every step of the way.
We’ll be helping clients apply for funding, navigate the carbon audit process, set science-based targets, outline strategies, milestones and every step needed to reduce their carbon and aim for net-zero emissions.
How will we be doing it?
We know there is a lot of information out there that can be quite confusing. We’ve been busy behind the scenes ensuring we’re up to date with our own climate literacy/climate awareness with training through various accreditation boards, including The University of Cambridge Business and Climate Change: Towards Net Zero Emissions and the Business Growth Hub Manchester’s Journey to Net Zero Programme.
On top of this, we’ve partnered with The University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University’s Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory and Eco-I NW projects to collaborate in developing a tool to help prioritise spending within a company towards goals of carbon reduction. The research teams at LJMU will also be an instrumental resource as we contribute to climate awareness/climate education events, translating what new net-zero policies will mean for large energy users.
Broadening our sights for the bigger picture.
Alongside assisting manufacturers in creating more sustainable processes, we also know we have an instrumental role in hydrogen production to replace fossil fuels. There is more emphasis on optimising the hydrogen production process’s energy efficiency, as the demand for green hydrogen surpasses blue.
The production of hydrogen through an electrolyser brings about several potential power quality challenges. The various topology AC/DC or DC/DC inverter systems required to power the electrolyser can generate unwanted harmonics and consume significant amounts of reactive power.
Enspec is vastly experienced in these particular power quality challenges, from initial simulation and diagnoses right up to supplying a solution to mitigate potential issues.
Our system studies team can model complex power systems and predict power quality outcomes based upon manufacturer data. We can take live power quality measurements to diagnose power quality issues and highlight the exact cause and solution for operational sites.
We are also market leaders in the design, supply and maintenance of LV and or MV power factor correction and harmonic filtration. We can design a solution for hydrogen sites experiencing problems, ensuring an efficient and safe hydrogen production process.

European Regional Development Fund
The project is receiving up to £5m of funding from the England European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the European Structural and Investment Funds Growth Programme 2014-2020. The Department for Communities and Local Government is the Managing Authority for ERDF. Established by the European Union ERDF funds help local areas stimulate their economic development by investing in projects which will support innovation, businesses, create jobs and local community regenerations.

The Northern Powerhouse is a key aspect of this Government’s approach to addressing the productivity gap in the North and ensuring a stronger, more sustainable economy for all parts of the UK.
Alongside over €1.5 billion of European Regional Development Fund support for businesses and communities across the North, the government has awarded £3.4 billion in three rounds of Growth Deals across the Northern Powerhouse.
