Sustainability Is a Critical Issue
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has recommended that our society become carbon neutral by 2050 in order to prevent temperatures rising above 1.5 degrees causing irreversible climate change. Unison Energy and our clients are leading that transition.
No one technology can achieve carbon-neutral today but a mix of solutions can get us there. Cogeneration facilities can reduce carbon emissions by 30-40%. Implementing multiple technologies in a microgrid including solar power can further reduce carbon emissions to 40 to 60%. In the future, renewable gas from biofuels and even hydrogen will be readily available through existing gas pipelines allowing facilities to be carbon neutral using their existing infrastructure. In the meantime, Unison Energy supports reforestation, a concept endorsed at the 2020 World Economic Forum, to remove the remaining carbon from the atmosphere to achieve carbon neutrality today.
