In the medium to long term, increasing energy costs mean the world’s economies have to transition from carbon based fuels to non-carbon substitutes to mitigate climate change. A move towards a circular economy is also needed as human demand on global resources is in danger of outstripping supply and has reached super-exponential levels for some resources. It's a challenging time for the industry but MWH, now part of Stantec, Technical Director Dr Stephen Palmer believes that energy recovery is the key to reducing Water and Sewage Companies ‘cost to serve’ and carbon footprint. http://owl.li/EwTK30fVI7S

Earlier this month the government re-launched an inquiry into how electric vehicles will put pressure on the electricity grid and existing energy infrastructure. MWH Global, now part of Stantec’s, head of thermal power and energy John Ord explained to New Civil Engineer magazine that without sufficient storage systems at a local level, such as batteries, the electricity grid may not be able to cope with a surge in demand caused by electric car charging.

Employees from the MWH UK High Wycombe office recently put their gardening skills to good use for Stantec in the Community Week. The team had a fun time cleaning and maintaining gardens in their local neighbourhood with Community Impact Bucks, a charitable organisation dedicated to making a positive difference for the communities of Buckinghamshire. Well done guys! #StantecTogether

As a result of the 2014 Water Act and Ofwat, water companies up and down the UK are increasingly studying how resilient they might be to stresses and strains, both now and in the future. MWH, now part of Stantec, Senior Principal Consultant Alec Erskine believes ‘reliability engineering’ is the answer – the way to measure resilience and make more meaningful decisions. http://ow.ly/2qlv30erG6L
