Enable Hire is heavily involved in supporting businesses working towards delivering the UK Government’s Net Zero Strategy.

We have supplied plant, tools and welfare facilities for contractors working rapidly to provide entirely new infrastructure for low and zero-carbon technologies, such as a national network of electric vehicle (EV) charging points on petrol station forecourts. And we also have wide experience in the rail sector, where we work with partners focused on ensuring that the railway of the future not only carries more passengers and freight, but also becomes even more energy-efficient, maximising its huge potential as a low-carbon form of transport.

As a responsible business, we recognise that we, too, have to play our own part by reducing reliance on fossil fuels and by switching to low-carbon or even zero-carbon options wherever possible. That, in turn, helps all our hire customers reduce their own carbon footprint.

Enable Hire offers a huge range of products that includes everything from specialised rail tools through to ultra-modern welfare vans and trailers, from immaculately maintained diggers to fleet management services, and from battery-powered hand tools to environmental monitoring equipment. We are working hard to incorporate low-carbon solutions into that line-up wherever we can. All our plant can already run on HVO biofuel as well as ordinary white diesel. Our site lighting line-up includes several low-consumption LED solutions. Come to us for standalone solar hybrid power generators. And in plant hire, we even now offer an option to specify an electric (EV) telehandler.

When it comes to eco-friendly welfare, we are the acknowledged experts: all our vans, trailers and static units have energy efficiency built in and are HVO-ready. Many also offer hybrid power, topping up batteries with a solar panel. For the ultimate, there’s our ZERO CO2 hydrogen-powered welfare trailer.

With the Net Zero sector currently expanding so fast, we pride ourselves on serving rental customers in the sector quickly and with minimum fuss. Simply put, Enable Hire is fully equipped to help you get the job done.

Here are the answers to the questions that our customers most often ask.

  • Net-zero welfare hire solutions strive to reduce carbon emissions and environmental effect by powering facilities with renewable energy sources such as solar panels. To attain carbon neutrality, these solutions frequently include energy-efficient technology and waste reduction measures. The use of biodegradable and compostable materials, the reduction of single-use plastics, and the promotion of recycling and waste management practises are all examples of environmentally friendly welfare hire solutions. Furthermore, environmentally conscientious welfare hiring businesses may obtain products from welfare hire companies such as Enable Welfare with high environmental credentials, assuring a more sustainable and ethical approach.

  • Eco welfare units help to reduce carbon emissions and environmental effect by combining renewable energy sources, such as solar panels to power the facilities inside. This strategy contributes to carbon neutrality and helps to reduce the event’s or worksite ecological footprint. These eco welfare units help to make the environment cleaner and more sustainable by promoting recycling and waste management practices. Furthermore, hiring an eco welfare unit displays a commitment to sustainability, improving the company’s public image as a socially responsible business. Finally, eco-friendly decisions foster a happy and conscientious environment that benefits both guests and workers while also contributing to the overall success and effect of the event or worksite.

  • Solar power generators, which provide clean and sustainable energy for on-site facilities and lodging, are essential to attaining net-zero welfare hire solutions. Worksites can dramatically lower their carbon footprint and reliance on fossil fuels by utilising solar energy, hence reducing greenhouse gas emissions by hiring solar power generators from Enable Welfare. In rural or off-grid situations where access to conventional power sources may be restricted, a solar powered generator can be especially helpful.

  • These eco welfare vans are often electric or low-emission vehicles, lowering carbon emissions and air pollution dramatically. Charging them with renewable energy sources like solar power keeps their use carbon-neutral. The primary feature of our eco welfare vans is the solar panel that helps power the leisure batteries onboard, which lowers fuel consumption and makes your site more environmentally friendly. All while still offering the same outstanding service as our normal welfare vans, which feature complete canteen facilities. Your worksite can contribute to a more sustainable future by including eco welfare vans into your welfare hire solutions, decreasing their carbon footprint and supporting greener initiatives.
