Renewable energy is no longer the buzzword that it once was. It’s the emerging future of our energy market – quickly becoming a reality for many companies looking to diversify their energy sources, and include equipment that offsets their carbon footprint. 

Renewable energy is more affordable than ever before. It’s also a future-oriented investment for any company looking to establish its economic viability in the long term. So what exactly are the benefits of renewable energy and how easy is it to swap over to renewable energy equipment

Let’s take a closer look at what the future holds.

 

What is renewable energy and why does it matter?

 

Renewable energy is derived from sustainable and naturally occurring sources like the sun, water, wind, and even plants. As opposed to fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas, renewable energy sources are infinite – meaning they don’t deplete over time. They are sustainable because they don’t emit dangerous greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming, and have a minimal if not positive effect on the environment. It’s no surprise therefore that companies are looking into including technologies and equipment that gain from the benefits of renewable energy. 

Renewable energy takes on many forms, including:

  • Solar energy
  • Wind power 
  • Biomass energy 
  • Geothermal energy 
  • Hydropower

 

What are the benefits of renewable energy?

The Benefits of Renewable energy are quickly being realised across multiple industries and for different reasons. Here are some of the main reasons why companies are making the shift:

 

1. Renewable energy means zero emissions 

 

According to the CSIRO, Australia’s energy production makes up 33.6 per cent of the country’s total greenhouse emissions, while mining, manufacturing, and commercial projects make up another 20.4 percent. Altogether, Australia produced 499 million tonnes of carbon dioxide in 2020 alone. 

Switching to renewables means weaning off these sources (mainly coal and oil) in favour of energy sources that have low or zero emissions. The benefits are very clear: reducing air pollution, minimising the impact on the carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and minimising the effects of climate change. 

 

2. Renewable energy is seen as fulfilling social responsibility

 

There’s a reason why all the big companies, whether it’s big tech or automotive, are committing to green energy targets. 

It’s the right thing to do, not only as a sustainable business model (we’ll get into that later) but also from a social perspective, your company can get a boost in popularity if you’re seen to be acting with the environment in mind. But it’s not enough to just commit to arbitrary targets – fulfilling your green energy plans is also important. 

 

3. Renewable energy improves health 

 

If we’ve learned anything over the past few years it’s that health is one of the most valuable things we have. And whether it’s the health of your employees, or the community more generally, pursuing renewable energy as part of your business model isn’t just good for the environment – it’s also good for people’s health. 

Traditional methods of energy production not only damage the environment – but powerful pollutants such as nitrogen oxide or NOx can prove dangerous to people’s health and well-being. Switching to renewable energy can bypass the worst of this, and has minimal to no negative health effects for employees or local populations more broadly. 

 

4. Renewable energy reduces costs

 

Making the switch to more renewable sources of energy might seem daunting at first – but the economic benefit is also becoming increasingly obvious for many businesses across a wide range of industries. 

The most obvious impact on your business is lower energy costs. Renewable energy comes at a lower cost to your business and indeed to the environment. 

The money saved from energy costs can be redirected into growth, marketing and other fields that will have a positive effect on your business in the long term. 

 

5. Renewable energy boosts your position in the industry 

 

Being an industry leader means taking initiative and leading the way in corporate responsibility and showing that it works. A major benefit of renewable energy is the ability to boost your business’ standing in the industry, while also reaping the rewards along the way. 

Younger generations are increasingly looking to support businesses that are taking real steps to improve their environmental footprint. Being at the forefront of your niche and adopting renewable energy resources can see a big ROI over the long term.
