Celebrating STEM career diversity in construction

Celebrating STEM career diversity in construction
British Science Week, which in 2021 takes place from 8th to 13th March, celebrates the broad range of jobs and careers available in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) industries and promotes STEM to younger generations by providing activity packs and school projects. While children learn the core sciences, like biology, chemistry and physics as part of the curriculum, many are yet to understand how to apply the knowledge to real life situations.

The generator sweet spot

The generator sweet spot
In cycling, sweet spot training involves placing the body under sustained stress, but not so much stress that it cannot be held for a long duration.

Are temperatures rising too high for UK power?
In August 2020, roadside recovery provider, Green Flag predicted a surge in breakdowns due to the UK’s hot weather - 15 drivers were predicted to break down every minute over the period of the heatwave. As well as creating issues with tyre pressure and chemicals in car batteries, hot weather can cause engines to overheat. Facilities managers need confidence that the same won’t happen to the engines in their back-up generators.

The perfect recipe for affordable energy

The perfect recipe for affordable energy
Cooking using leftovers and cheap ingredients, also known as Cucina Povera is a tradition that spans across most of Europe. From the Neapolitan soffritto to British black pudding, some of the world’s most iconic dishes derive from the need to use readily available resources effectively. Over time, these cunning recipes have become a part of our identity and culture. So, given this proud part of our history, why are we not extending the same creativity to efficient power generation?
