Powering a greener revolution

A Deep South Media client has featured on BBC One’s flagship programme Sunday Politics.

Following regional media coverage, Eco Sustainable Solutions appeared on the hour-long Sunday programme to explain how the company’s green power plant in West Dorset converts household food waste into electricity.

Just one caddy of leftovers provides enough energy to toast eight slices of bread.

Great Britain is forging ahead of 25 other major economies with green technologies; polluting coal usage for electricity is reportedly down from 88% in 1971 to less than 2% currently.

Another Deep South Media client, Norwich Airport, is playing a transport role in offshore wind farms in England.

Norwich Airport is a key hub for the southern North Sea offshore oil, gas and wind power industry, with nearly 96,000 passengers a year travelling offshore.

Nearly 4GW of offshore wind power is operational off the east of England, accounting for more than half of the UK’s current 7.5GW installed capacity.

This figure is reportedly set to grow substantially, with Norfolk and Suffolk regarded as the epicentre for green energy production in the country.

With the increased national focus on environmental best practice, Deep South Media is co-hosting a unique seminar in Bournemouth, Dorset, later this year.

The invitation-only event, with Savills, Bournemouth University and engineering consultants Hoare Lea, sprung from a conversation about what urban planners could be doing to incorporate greener features in our built environment.

Ron Wain, Deep South Media’s managing director, said: “Every business, every household, is rightly under pressure to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

“As a stakeholder specialist in planning of developments, Deep South Media advocates environmentally friendly measures, from the planting of mixed deciduous trees in new car parks to the installation of electric charging points for vehicles.

“Green technologies are evolving all the time and consumers are increasingly conscious that their purchases either tread lightly on the environment or are carbon offset.

“Expect to see retailers increasingly list their carbon footprint on their products, whether that’s a pair of jeans or a carton of milk.

“We are seeing this in action already – earlier this month Shell became the first retailer to offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from customers’ fuel purchases at its UK service stations, at no extra cost.”
