Transforming Businesses and Cities Into Clean Energy Generator

SHINE Partners | June 2022


As people worldwide become more conscientious of climate change and sustainability efforts, companies are having to become equally as aware of their carbon footprint and contributions to better caring for our planet. A recent study revealed that more than a third of global consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products as demand grows for environmentally friendly alternatives.

Consumers are increasingly interested in sustainability. As mentioned, global consumers are becoming more aware of the importance of sustainability. In fact, a recent study found that 66% of respondents said they would pay more for sustainable goods. What’s more, another study showed that the majority of consumers (84%) believe that businesses have a responsibility to help improve the environment.

This growing awareness is projected to increasingly continue over the coming months and years. More and more people are becoming conscientious of their impact on the planet and are looking to make change. In turn, they will put their money towards brands and companies that are helping to make a difference.

Sustainability is good for business. Not only is it the right thing to do but being environmentally friendly can actually be beneficial for businesses. A study by CDP found that sustainable companies outperformed their less sustainable counterparts financially. Furthermore, sustainability has been shown to improve employee morale and motivation while also reducing absenteeism and turnover.

When employees feel like they are working for a company with values that align with their own, they are more likely to be engaged in their work. As a result, they will be more productive and have less need for time off. Moreover, satisfied employees tend to stick around longer, saving the company money in the long run.

Commercial-scale solar installations have the potential to transform companies notorious for contributing to air pollution into clean energy generators. Solar photovoltaic (PV) panels and solar thermal systems can be used to generate a significant amount of electricity to power businesses and homes. These renewable energy sources can help to offset a corporation's reliance on polluting fossil fuels which in turn reduces the amount of harmful emissions released into the atmosphere.

Solar PV panels are made up of semiconductor materials that convert sunlight into direct current (DC) electricity. When installed on a large scale, such as on the rooftops of buildings or in open spaces like open lots or fields, solar PV panels can generate a significant amount of electricity for a city. Solar thermal systems use mirrors to concentrate sunlight onto a fluid-filled receiver, which heats up and produces steam that can be used to generate electricity or provide heat for buildings.

Both solar PV and solar thermal systems have the potential to transform buildings into clean energy generators by providing a renewable and emissions-free source of electricity. Solar PV panels are more commonly used in urban areas, while solar thermal systems are more commonly used in rural areas. However, both technologies have the potential to significantly reduce a company’s reliance on polluting fossil fuels and help to improve air quality.

It’s evident that companies must focus on being environmentally friendly if they want to remain relevant and prosper. The benefits of doing so are clear—it’s good for business and it’s the right thing to do. In some cases, it may even become a legal requirement. So, if your company isn’t already focused on sustainability, now is the time to start.
