Somar's revolutionary new energy-saving systems can bring benefits at all stages of the global industrial cycle. The enormous potential for saving both energy and money is available now, and addresses ecological as well as economic issues.
Across the globe, the financial meltdown seen in the world's banking system has seen credit dry up for businesses and individuals, decimating demand for just about every product and service. With the global economy experiencing such a massive slowdown, businesses worldwide are attempting to stay competitive by cutting costs. For many businesses, energy costs make up a substantial part of their out-goings, and many forward-thinking managers have realised that investing in energy-saving technology not only has short term benefits for their company's bottom line, but the ongoing and sustainable financial savings will augment their competitiveness as economies begin to recover. Somar's proven energy-saving solutions make the equation simple: Saving Energy = Pure Profit. Return On Investment periods are typically 12-18 months, whilst our UK Pay-As-You-Save scheme delivers positive cash flow from day one.
Energy-saving solutions also mitigate the effects of turbulent energy markets. Soaring oil prices, shortages in energy reserves, disrupted supplies from international disputes, the prospect of electricity shortages as fossil fuel power stations are replaced by renewable energy generation, suppliers hesitant to pass on price decreases to customers and deliberate reduction in supply to raise prices: all these factors add to the energy costs experienced by businesses. Installation of Somar's effective energy-saving technology makes companies more resistant to the effect of these factors on their profits.
Saving energy has now also firmly arrived on the international political agenda. Acceptance of the reality of climate change from CO2 emissions - and the financial, environmental, and humanitarian costs expected as a result - has become nearly unanimous since the signing of the Kyoto Protocol in 1997, with governments now setting ambitious national emissions targets to be reached within the next five years and beyond. The implementation of carbon taxes and cap-and-trade schemes sees direct financial penalties applied to businesses based on their CO2 emissions: Somar's energy-saving solutions enable our customers to make immediate CO2 reductions. A recent pilot installation at Ricoh with just eight Somar Integra units provided an annual reduction in CO2 emissions of 34.8 tonnes. It would take 6,900 mature trees to reduce CO2 emissions by the same amount!
