What does ‘net zero’ mean?
Net zero, a term denoting the equilibrium between greenhouse gas emissions released and removed from the atmosphere, serves as a pivotal goal. The UK government has made a resolute pledge for the nation to achieve net zero by 2050. Consequently, businesses must embrace and invest in essential renewable energy sources like solar PV.
There are two different routes to achieving our goal, which work in tandem:
1. Reducing ongoing emissions 2. removing greenhouse gases
When the level of emissions removed from the atmosphere surpasses the level produced within the same period, we will attain the status of a territorial net zero emitter. Furthermore, as the level of emissions being produced decreases, the attainment of this status becomes increasingly feasible.
Given that solar PV does not emit any emissions during electricity generation, it will undoubtedly emerge as a pivotal component in shaping a green future.
