Energy Management and Renewables Recruitment
In today’s world, saving energy is paramount, energy management is the process of monitoring, controlling and conserving energy in a building or organisation. This involves a number of steps, metering your energy consumption, collection of data as well finding opportunities to save energy, and estimating how much energy can be saved through,
for example, replacing or upgrading the Building M&E plant.
M8’s team over the years have provided Energy Management professionals to a number of organisations saving millions, we have a vast network of accredited and experienced Energy professionals with a proven track records of delivering energy management and cost saving efficiencies.
Renewable energy is energy that comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished). In 2008, about 19% of global final energy consumption came from renewables, with 13% coming from traditional biomass, which is mainly used for heating, and 3.2% from hydroelectricity.
New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 2.7% and are growing rapidly. The share of renewables in electricity generation is around 18%, with 15% of global electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewables.
Wind power is growing at the rate of 30% annually, with a world wide installed capacity of 158 gigawatts and is widely used in Europe, Asia, and the United States.
While many renewable energy projects are large-scale,renewable technologies are also suited to rural and remote areas, where energy is often crucial in human development. Globally, an estimated 3 million households get power from small solar PV systems.
Climate change concerns, coupled with high oil prices, peak oil, and increasing government support are driving increasing renewable energy legislation, incentives and commercialisation. With the above in mind and new technologies being introduced M8 Recruitment stay abreast of what is happening in the industry and more importantly have expertise and candidate database to fulfil your Energy and Renewable vacancies.
