If there is one thing the recent coronavirus crisis has taught us, it is that the environment is much better off without us. The level of pollution has dropped dramatically with the world on lockdown.

The industrial sector is particularly renowned for its energy consumption. The question is, who uses the most and how can we work towards lowering consumption levels?

Industrial sector uses most delivered energy

It is estimated that the industrial sector uses approximately 54% of the global delivered energy. Energy is used in a variety of ways in the industrial sector, from heating buildings to energy used within manufacturing.

It is also estimated that energy consumption within the industrial sector will continue to rise by 1.2% each year. So, which industrial sectors use the most energy?

In terms of energy intensive manufacturing, the food and pulp and paper sectors rank highly. For non-energy intensive manufacturing, pharmaceuticals and adhesives tend to use the most. In terms of non-manufacturing energy consumption, the agricultural sector uses the most.

Renewable energy on the rise

A useful infographic has shown how the usage of different energy sources is expected to increase. It looks at the increase level through to the year 2040.

Liquid energy is expected to rise the most, though renewable energy is also seeing a healthy increase. As the world looks to lower its carbon footprint, a major focus is being placed on finding renewable energy sources.

Reliable supplies need to be used

There are several ways businesses can lower their industrial energy consumption. One way is making sure equipment and machinery runs efficiently. This includes ensuring they are using reliable supplies such as AC to DC power supply v12. Using reliable components and supplies ensures machinery will operate more effectively.

Companies should also look into adopting greener policies. Switching to greener processes and reducing their reliance upon fossil fuels is an effective way to help out the environment.

You should also look into having machinery and equipment monitored regularly. This will help you to spot any potential faults which could be using up a lot more energy than they should be.

Overall, the industrial sector does use the most energy out of all other sectors. There are ways to lower energy usage in the industry however, with renewable energy and reliable supplies being just two measures that could be taken.

Samuel Leeds Buys Shares In Property Tribes; Says He Wants To Make It Better

People in UK property circles may be familiar with the very public dispute between former MTV presenter, property investor, and community manager of the company Property Tribes, Vanessa Warwick, & property investment trainer and owner of the company ‘Property Investors’, Samuel Leeds; as Leeds has accused Warwick of assisting with racism and discrimination against ethnic minority tenants. In recent news, Samuel Leeds was reported to have bought a 35% share of the company Property Tribes, making him officially now a person of significant control at Property Tribes.

Warwick established Property Tribes to accumulate wisdom from various property owners and landlords to create a place of guidance for people in the industry to do business better. According to the company,

“We wanted to create a free use, safe, and agenda-free place for landlords to get information from a “hive mind”, not a singularity, so that they could learn and grow their property business.”

However, in one of his recent videos, Samuel Leeds pointed out blatant support of racism in some of the advice coming from Warwick herself. As one of the landlords asks on the forum – if they would be implicated by the race discrimination laws in the UK for refusing tenancy to Bangladeshi families as the landlord is not fond of the smell of their staple food, curry; Vanessa Warwick herself is seen advising against mentioning the reason for said refusal, thus averting the legal repercussions altogether.

In the video, Leeds points out several more situations where Warwick has behaved in a racist manner. In fact, she has become a new advisor on the panel of the UK’s Property Redress Scheme and has been under criticism in their forum as well for supporting discrimination against ethnic minorities.

Warwick also expressed strong disapproval of Leeds as a property trainer citing the reason that his students came from the “vulnerable” demographic. Leeds called out the racist mindset in this reasoning, as in reality, his students predominantly come from ethnic minorities and don’t fall in the “vulnerable” category. He began drawing attention to the issue over his YouTube channel and his website, and ended up facing severe disparagement from Warwick and her followers. Leeds finally sued Warwick for defamation and she brought a counter lawsuit for six-figure damages.

In an attempt to put an end to the battle once and for all, Samuel Leeds reports to have bought a share, 35% to be exact, of the company, Property Tribes. Even though he is only a minority shareholder and will have limited control, Leeds believes he can make a difference in “cleaning up the company” and reduce racism in the forum.

He jokingly adds,

“Because they trolled me, I wanted to at least get paid… Like Michael Jackson did to Eminem.”

Leeds pledges that any money he makes off this transaction will be donated to charitable organisations that tackle racism and online bullying. In addition, Leeds will donate an extra £50,000 to organisations that fight hatred in the UK. With this move, he is determined to take a strong stand against all discriminations in the property sector or any other industry.
