The future looks bright for industry!

20 November 2008

Steve Gallon, Managing Director of FIBOX UK, explains how advanced enclosure products could benefit from today’s current industrial crisis!

In the short term, surviving the global credit crisis and dealing with the mounting concerns over climate change; with the outrageous rise in the cost of energy, the search for the most cost-effective use of low-carbon energy is growing rapidly as countries, companies and individuals make efforts to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions …I must admit the immediate future looks bleak! However, if we are to reach the ambitious CO2 reduction targets set by the worlds Governments, it’s now up to modern industries to pioneer the search for new, and sustainable forms of energy and that’s where I see a ‘golden’ opportunity!

If the world’s fossil fuel-based economy must be shifted to one that relies on greater energy efficiency, renewable sources of energy and different ways of using natural resources, then there will be a huge financial potential in developing and using the new technologies and services we will need.

In todays search to find new sources of ‘green’ energy, manufacturing industry has to look to new ways, not only of reducing their own energy costs, but simaltainiously, they must also find ways of reducing their dependence on fossil fuels, whilst developing alternative ways of manufacturing new and more innovative products to meet the demands of those’ newly emerging industries’ that must inevitably rise in answer to the challenge to secure the energy crisis by pioneering the creation of new forms of safe renewable, zero-carbon energy!

Whether the answer lies in the development of Wind turbines, Bio-fuels, Sea Power, Hydrogen Gas, Carbon-Capture, Solar Energy or a combination of all of these; their futuristic machinery, controllers, monitors, sensors, heatexchangers, cabling, communication and other, still to be developed, evermore sophisticated devices and technologies, will need to be produced; and from FIBOX’s point of view, those devices will need even more advanced enclosures and enclosure systems to house and protect them.
