Tesco engineering energy-efficient stores

Mark Hawker, IMechE Fellow and Head of Engineering Design for Tesco Property Services, discusses the construction and operation of their energy-efficient sustainable concept store. Using new technologies and construction methods, engineers have radically reduced the store's energy consumption and achieved a 43% reduction in its carbon footprint. They are now well on course to reducing their energy consumption by 50% between 2000 and 2010.

4th Teesside Area Tech Talk: Net Zero, Real One's

In this fourth Teesside Tech Talk, hosted by members of the IMechE's Teessside Area Panel and the Institution of Power Engineers (IPowerE), engineers will hear about two large scale net zero projects being developed on Teesside. David Few, Project Director, Innogy will give a talk on the 1.4 gigawatt (GW) Sofia Offshore Wind Farm sited on Dogger Bank, which will connect to the National Grid in Teesside and is the largest renewable project in the North East of England. Then Colin McGill, Project Director, Net Zero Teesside will give a talk on NZT’s Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) project, based in Teesside in the North East of England. In partnership with local industry and with committed, world class partners, it aims to decarbonise a cluster of carbon-intensive businesses by as early as 2030.
