Amid the chaos and devastation of Covid-19, it would have been easy to miss the news that Britain has actually set a new record in recent weeks.

At the beginning of June it was reported that Britain had gone coal-free for two months, the longest period since the industrial revolution. The even better news is that renewables are now generating more power than all fossil fuels combined.

This is welcomed news for the government who last year set the target of zero greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050.

With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at some of the businesses who are leading the way in renewable technology in the UK.

Azuri Technologies

A major player in pay-as-you-go solar products, Azuri technologies provide PayGo solar systems to rural off-grid communities. Their technology has been known to stretch as far as the deepest depths of Africa.

Azuri technologies are committed to fixing the problem of energy access for those who are out of reach of the grid. An issue that affects up to 1.3 billion people globally.

Through innovation, Azuri has managed to create the solar home systems, which allows individuals to pay for solar power on a pay-as-you-go just the same as they would do to top up their mobile phone.

BBOXX

Meet the Chiswick based tech firm that has developed a solar plan to power most of Africa. To date BBOXX has deployed more than 150,000 solar systems and helped nearly one million people across 35 countries.

BBOXX is working towards improving customer’s quality of life through affordable, clean energy solutions. Their aim for the future is to expand and be able to provide other vital utility services such as cooking, internet access and water.

At the heart of the business is a management platform called Pulse, which continuously monitors and collects data enabling BBOXX to reach previously remote locations.

Moixa Technology

The UK’s number one home battery business and platform for managing storage services. Moixa’s ground-breaking smart energy management software helps renewable energy work (yeah you guessed it) smartly, for both individuals and businesses.

The smart battery and Solar Panel system that Moixa has created could save you up to 50% off your energy bills every year!

Limejump

A start-up that truly promises to challenge the energy industry. Limejump is leading the charge with an alternative route for how power (renewable of course) is transported.

Through using the latest advancements in technology and machine learning algorithms, Limejump can deliver renewable energy on demand.

Their smart box called the Virtual Power Platform has the ability to provide generators and consumers with full market access to real-time data, providing transparency and control to all customers.

Econic Technologies

The idea for Econic was born out of vision that positive gain can come from waste carbon dioxide for the plastics industry.

Using cutting-edge patented catalyst chemistry techniques, Econic have created a formula that means waste CO2 can be transformed into positive economic and environmental potential.

A major benefit of the ground-breaking technology is that it means up to as much as 50% of the necessary fossil fuel-based raw materials you’d normally need to use can be substituted for carbon dioxide instead, meaning there will be less reliance needed on fossil fuels in the years to come.
