IESVE has now prevented 30 Power Stations from being built

By Suzanne Wallace on Thursday 17 January 2019

You may remember back in November 2017, we launched a Power Station Challenge campaign to (through the use of our IESVE technology) prevent 100 power stations from having to be built. At the time we worked out that we’d saved 25 power stations from being built. We’re delighted to say that today we’ve hit the number 30! Congratulations to every one of our IESVE users who are continually contributing to this rising number through their many VE projects.

With the recent publication of frightening climate reports from the IPCC, reducing our carbon emissions has never been more important. We all must step-up and do more. Here at IES we know that the technology to significantly reduce the impact that buildings and cities have on the environment is available. However, this technology isn’t being utilised to its full potential.

Knowing that our industry is the biggest contributor to climate change means that we also have the potential to combat it. We can make a huge difference. Buildings have changed much over recent years, but the way we design, handover and operate them hasn’t. The industry needs to shake off its ‘slow to change’ malaise and catch up with other industries in their use of digital technology and data.

We’re asking you again to join us in our challenge to prevent 100 power stations from having to be built. Our users have seen first-hand the benefits of using our technology and the significant impact it has already had on reducing carbon emissions produced by the built environment. We know that we can do more, but we need your help. We have the technology, you have the skills. Help us to prevent 100 power stations from being built.
