the depot_ has reopened its doors!

As spring is arriving and lockdown is starting to ease, we are all excited @energylab to see our revamped office, the depot_ reopen its doors! While we’ve all mastered the art of remote working over the past year or so, nothing quite makes up for face-to-face collaboration and catch ups. If you’re in the area, feel free to stop by to say hello and grab a coffee or bite to eat. The depot is also…

Embracing the Circular Economy

Embracing the Circular Economy

Sustainable design is embedded in everything we do as a practice, and forms one of our core values.  But sustainable design goes far beyond renewable energy and low or zero carbon technologies. It is also about embracing the Circular Economy: reducing waste and reusing what we have, rather than just dumping it and sending it off to landfill. It may seem counterintuitive to retain equipment and systems that are not as energy efficient as the...
Diversity and Inclusivity in the Workplace

Diversity and Inclusivity in the Workplace

So here we are mid-way through 2020 and who would have thought it would have turned out like this! At the usual New Year ‘look ahead’ in January, I don’t know of anyone who could have forecasted the events of the last 3 months. But it is not just COVID 19 that has grabbed the headlines, the issue of equality and diversity, or lack of, has come back into focus. Rightly so. Racism is abhorrent...
The ‘New Normal’ – it’s not just about the Physical and not Everything needs to change

The ‘New Normal’ – it’s not just about the Physical and not Everything needs to change

While the nation eagerly awaits the next phase announcement on Sunday, there is much activity within our industry about ‘back to work office readiness’ in the much talked about ‘new normal’.

So, where better to start than our own team, asking what...

Attracting and Nurturing Talent

Attracting and Nurturing Talent

Regular readers of our blogs will know that at Energylab we are passionate about developing our talented team, and also helping attract new talent to our industry.  So a recent survey published by The Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) regarding recruitment of young engineers – Recruitment Solutions 2020 – made a very interesting read, with some surprising results.  The analysis of engineering sectors that graduates wanted to work was particularly interesting. The Energy sector...
Goodbye January…

Goodbye January…

January always brings mixed feelings. The start of the month holds great promise - a new page turned and we are all full of new and exciting ideas and resolutions for the year ahead. But by mid-month the sheen has worn off; the resolutions are already becoming a drag and payday feels like a lifetime away. It’s safe to say that, for most of us, the January blues have well and truly kicked in. But...
