TEAM Energy’s Abigail Basketter provides an energy professional’s honest reflections on the challenge of tackling climate change against commercial and legislative pressures.
The government must introduce radical heat decarbonisation policies if it is to deliver on its intention to legislate for net zero emissions by 2050, says Switch2 Energy.
The major challenge of cleaning up gas guzzling homes will be discussed by heat network specialist Switch2 Energy at two London Climate Action Week events this July.

Toronto, Canada, June 3, 2019 – Armstrong Fluid Technology announced that it has signed the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment, launched by the World Green Building Council. The commitment is unique in positioning energy efficiency as a central component to achieving decarbonization across global portfolios. All signatories to the Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment pledge to reach net zero carbon operating emissions within their portfolios by 2030.
To meet this commitment, Armstrong will take the following actions to incorporate energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions:
- Implement energy efficiency measures to lower electricity and fossil fuel consumption.
- Generate renewable energy on-site.
- Procure renewable generated electricity and carbon offsets.
Reflecting on the Net Zero commitment, Charles Armstrong, Chairman and CEO, Armstrong Fluid Technology stated “For the past 20 years we have been perfecting the efficiency of our portfolio and dismantling the economic barriers around efficiency and reduced GHG emissions. Improving performance does not have to involve paying a premium price. Reaching Net Zero and assisting our customers in meeting their own sustainability objectives is our primary work. The synergy between this Net Zero commitment and our own 2 by 22 initiative to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by 2 million tonnes by the year 2022 made it an easy decision to become one of the more than 50 distinguished signatories allied to combatting the climate crisis.”
