Nuclear represents one of the largest untapped opportunities for decarbonisation at the scale needed

With Net Zero targets fast approaching, the race is on to reach industrial decarbonisation across all industries. The UK is making good progress in the reduction of carbon emissions, and the further development of low-carbon technologies and infrastructure is vital to continue clean business growth. There are several green options becoming readily available and, as one of the largest sources of clean energy, nuclear is not to be overlooked. Nuclear energy produces carbon-free electricity that will benefit businesses in all sectors and could play a crucial role in achieving Net Zero success.

Equilibrion is a new company that supplies Net Zero solutions by utilising the success of nuclear energy. With many years of experience in the nuclear sector, their sole purpose is working alongside businesses with the aim of providing a more prosperous and sustainable future by taking advantage of the full potential of nuclear energy in decarbonising our heat, transport and industrial sectors. Equilibrion brings a fresh perspective on how nuclear can enable decarbonisation and is dedicated to playing a major role in climate change mitigation by supporting organisations to reach their full potential and unite in achieving global Net Zero success.

Caroline Longman, Director at Equilibrium states: “Nuclear energy has already prevented more carbon emissions than any other technology except hydropower, and it set for a resurgence as energy end users seek vast quantities of low carbon hydrogen, heat and flexible electricity to support achieving their environment, social and governance goals.  This is recognised by governments around the world and early adopters are now exploring what nuclear can do for their businesses.  Whether it be a major oil and gas company wishing to continue producing familiar liquid fuel products in a low carbon way, or an electric car user charging on nuclear produced electricity nuclear can and should play a role.  That’s why we are delighted to be supporting Foresight Net Zero Live to explore the endless possibilities and share our insights from within the sector on what is being done today to enable nuclear to deliver on its potential

Equilibrion will highlight the role of nuclear energy in the upcoming Foresight Net Zero 2023 Conference and Exhibition which will take place at the 4* DoubleTree Hilton hotel in Hull on June 28 + 29. Their talk will cover the many benefits of nuclear power and the role it can play in producing hydrogen, heat and flexible electricity which will inevitably drive decarbonisation across all sectors. With the UK government making way for the inclusion of nuclear in new policies, now is the perfect time for businesses to be informed and take action for a cleaner, greener and more profitable future. At the event, Equilibrion will give a presentation explaining how nuclear can rise to the task of rapid, large-scale deployment to meet the Government ambition and deliver multi-sector decarbonisation.

Philip Rogers, Director at Equilibrion adds: “Without nuclear playing its justified role in electric and non-electric applications, the energy transition is likely to be more expensive, have a greater level of risk and miss the opportunity to maximise the development of sovereign capability and jobs. Nuclear is the only technology capable of independently providing zero carbon electricity and heat to drive a multitude of industrial process where and when it is needed, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Off-grid nuclear to produce hydrogen and synthetic fuels has huge and currently untapped potential to deliver guilt free flight across the globe.

Equilibrion is demonstrating how businesses at all stages of the supply chain can take advantage of nuclear energy to enable industrial decarbonisation, reach Net Zero victory and allow economic growth. It is a crucial time for all industries to become more aware of how to make this transition and Equilibrion is clear that nuclear can and should play a role in reaching a Net Zero future.
