Post-pandemic, attitudes towards sustainability are rapidly changing for UK businesses across a number of sectors. Many factory owners and operators are considering a move towards greener utilities equipment, but surges in demand in the manufacturing industry are preventing organisations from making the jump to sustainable solutions. Taking this into account, Matt Watson, manufacturing specialist at Aggreko Northern Europe, explores how temporary solutions can help factory stakeholders avoid the operational and financial hurdles to adopting steam technology, and its potential for achieving a greener future.


heating, atomisation or humidification, the applications of steam are practically limitless. it is a vital part of many processes in pharmaceutical and manufacturing plants, as well as the food and beverage sector, shaping the face of industry as a whole. moreover, its importance as a power source

continues to grow, as the significance of adopting green policies and achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 occupies the global conscience. in the uK, industry can be


attributed to 32 per cent of heat-related Co2 emissions. 73 per cent of this industrial demand is for heat – 35 per cent of which is provided by steam boilers. While these figures are already staggering,


the industry’s demand for power only continues to grow, with energy bills for uK manufacturers rising by 37 per cent between 2014 and 2019. With these factors in mind, it is clear that a move to more energy- efficient systems is necessary, and that steam power will play a critical role for

ChANgiNg ATTiTUdEs ToWArds grEEN ENErgy Fortunately, attitudes towards adopting green technology are changing. a recent survey conducted by aggreko of over 200 public and private sector businesses discovered that 68 per cent of respondents were in favour of investing in sustainable alternatives post-pandemic. of these, 63 per cent cited ‘competitiveness’


as a reason for investment, amid the need to kick-start industry and move towards more efficient practices after the pandemic. other key reasons included rising energy bills (53 per cent) and


increasing strain on current equipment caused by growth in demand (52 per cent).


BArriErs To AdoPTioN The clear enthusiasm for moving towards green technology is an encouraging sign for the uK’s net zero targets. Yet, until steam power is made more accessible, the nation will continue to lag behind its emissions-lowering goals. at present, there are several key barriers preventing uK
