General Compliance

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

Where energy efficiency and sustainability are paramount, the role of electrical cabinets cannot be overstated. These cabinets, essential for power distribution, hold the key to optimising energy usage and reducing environmental impact. This section delves into the pivotal role of Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) electrical cabinets in promoting a greener and more efficient energy landscape.

Materials Impact

GRP, being environmentally friendly and recyclable, embodies a sustainable choice. Compared to traditional materials, GRP cabinets leave a smaller environmental footprint, aligning with the global push for eco-conscious practices.

Impact on EVs

As more and more electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles are on the road, new infrastructure for charging points are popping up all over the UK. GRP electrical cabinets play an important role in mounting the equipment and electrical infrastructure required. They're also made accessible to engineers conducting regular maintenance.


As we switch our energy infrastructure to a more sustainable model, power stations are requiring GRP Substation Enclosures more than ever. As we've identified the durability of the material helps withstand windy conditions, GRP enclosures are also often used to protect equipment with the various safety features they come built in with.
