What is sustainability?

Sustainability consists of fulfilling the needs of current generations without compromising the needs of future generations while ensuring a balance between economic growth, environmental care, and social well-being.

Whilst all types of sustainability are important one of the most vital is Environmental sustainability. We need to do all we can to help cut carbon emissions. This can be done in a variety of ways: through recycling, renewable energies, reducing waste, and the use of single-use plastics. In short, we need to preserve this planet for future generations.

Why is sustainability important for homeowners and businesses?

The UK government has set a target to achieve Net Zero (the balance between the amount of greenhouse gas produced and the amount removed from the atmosphere) by 2050. To achieve this and preserve our planet we all have a part to play, whether at home or at work.

By using Automation, you not only reduce wastage, but you also save money. Automation when paired with a renewable energy source will optimise efficiency. Where a renewable energy source is not viable or available, Automation is the key to Environmental sustainability.

How can Automation help?

Automation takes humans out of the loop. Sensors and schedules will ensure that lighting, heating, and electrical appliances when not required are switched off. The best way to save energy and become carbon neutral is to cut waste. If it is not needed let’s turn it off!

Alpha Touch Smart Living conducted a trial at an English football club within the stadium and the training centre. We monitored various areas and energy consumers. The results were staggering with certain areas showing a 50% reduction in energy usage with automation.
