The Energy Efficiency of your Home

A recent BBC news report states that more than two thirds of UK homes are failing to meet energy efficiency targets which means that more than 12 million homes fall below the C grade on Energy Performance Certficates (EPCs). Read the BBC Energy Efficiency Article Thermal imaging of your home is a fast and effective way to check your energy efficiency as areas of poor [...]

Drones and Decommissioning Nuclear Power Plants

A detailed study undertaken by the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority has identified a role that UAVs can  play in reducing both employee risks and the time and cost involved in decommissioning a nuclear power station. The conclusion following this detailed research is that drones really can offer benefit as part of the complex decommissioning process and the NDA will be exploring future opportunities to deploy these unmanned aircraft to [...]
