EnergySmart’s Industry Insights: The Global Energy Industry is on the up!

EnergySmart Renewables

It’s not just us at EnergySmart which are growing rapidly! In fact the global renewable energy industry grew at the fastest rate since 1999 last year and we at EnergySmart love to see our industry growing globally. Despite the vast disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the global energy watchdog evidenced that renewable energy projects such as wind farms and solar power projects grew rapidly by an impressive 45% last year. Solar power in particular grew by almost 50% more than its growth before the pandemic, this was largely due to the growing demand for clean energy from Governments globally and businesses. 

The team at EnergySmart are also proud to see the huge support in the energy sector from some of the UK’s largest businesses. In fact, a third of the UK’s biggest companies have set sights on net zero emissions. 30 of the FTSE100 companies have pledged to meet net zero by 2050. Companies such as BT Group, Sainsbury’s and Unilever are just some to name a few supporting the energy sector and setting sights on achieving net zero emissions.

This growth within the global energy sector could not have come at a better time for EnergySmart, particularly as our rapidly growing renewables department takes shape. Keep your eyes peeled for more updates on our ambitious renewable energy services which are coming very soon.
