Schwank's infographic view of energy challenges

29 May 2013

Schwank has produced an impactful Infographic on “Beating the Energy Gap” recently uploaded to Flickr at http://bit.ly/schwank, bringing in a range of statistics showing how the UK’s 50% CO2 reduction target by the mid 2020s is affecting the country’s ability to meet industrial and domestic demand

A range of power stations not meeting EU pollution laws are already closing and Alistair Buchanan of the energy regulator Ofgem has warned that the UK could face a “near crisis” between 2015 and 2018 with dramatic increases likely in the bills for households and businesses.

Steve Sherman, Managing Director of Schwank UK, explained that the objective of the Schwank Infographic is to provide an easy to assimilate visual reference of a complex issue. “We have taken a range of information and statements from government, the media and bodies such as the Carbon Trust. This shows the scale of the energy challenges the UK faces, but we have set this against the significant advances in energy saving that modern heating systems can deliver.

“Ed Davey, the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, has said that energy efficiency belongs at the heart of a low carbon economy and it must be a major priority in helping us overcome the current shortfall.”

Schwank, which invented the first gas fired infrared heater 80 years ago, has a wealth of experience in developing, manufacturing and installing radiant heating systems that consistently show 30% - 50% energy savings over conventional heaters. Their Infographic describes successful efficiency achievements across all types of application from aircraft hangars to restaurant patios, including ingenious heat recovery methods capturing the maximum possible energy output for reuse and recycling.

“We hope that our Schwank Infographic will inspire energy users to examine the efficiencies they could put in place to save on costs, conserve energy and reduce carbon emissions,” Steve Sherman concluded.
