With the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow starting at the end of this month, we thought it would be a great time to tell you how Genius Hub can help make your home align with the aims of COP26.
The primary goal of The 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) is to secure global net zero by the mid-century, with countries being asked to come forward with ambitious 2030 emissions reduction targets that align with this goal. Business and Energy Secretary, and COP26 President, Alok Sharma stated that “Tackling climate change is the one of the most urgent shared endeavours of our lifetimes, demanding bold action from every nation to prevent catastrophic global warming.” Therefore, this has been formulated into a plan by the UK Government by aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 68% by 2030. This was accompanied by the Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, which would create jobs and sets targets of 40 billion of private investment to develop innovative technologies to cut emissions: in his press release, Johnsons states that by recovering cleaner and building greener we can “turn the tide on climate change”. Recent initiatives, including the Green Homes Grant and the Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund, show that tackling emissions from domestic heating is high on the governments agenda. So where does Genius Hub as a company fit in with this?
Genius Hub aims to be a Net Carbon Negative business. All of the packaging used from warehouse to recipient is either recyclable or carbon neutral; we have even chosen a Carbon Neutral delivery service to help keep within our ethos of sustainability. We expect the same from the companies we work with; with our largest supplier having committed to decarbonising their global operations by 2030. Our partners, Jigsaw and Castrads, are both companies like us, whose manufacturing processes happen here in the England.
We understand that retrofitting homes with low-carbon technologies, such as heat pumps, open therm and hydrogen boilers, will be key to meeting the 2050 Net Zero target. That’s why we are constantly developing and evolving our products and software to be compatible with emerging technology to bridge the gap between strategy, policy and control.
Whether you are one in the 87% of homes using natural gas to heat your home, or you have electric or low carbon heating, Genius Hub’s mission is to bring sustainable heating to homes across the UK. At Genius Hub, we have already developed and continue to build upon our innovative smart heating solutions which not only significantly reduce carbon emissions from your heating requirements, but also produce tangible cost savings: By turning every room in your house into it’s own temperature controlled zone (no matter what heating type you possess) you can make sure you’re only heating the rooms you need to at any given time, saving many customers around 22% on heating bills.
