Exciting DECC win for Granted's clients ZERO Carbon Future
On the 25th of June it was announced that Granted’s long-term clients Zero Carbon Future had won a substantial pot of Government investment; the DECC grant. The competition's primary aim was to support innovation and progress in the heat industry so more homes across the UK can be heated for less, while at the same time improving energy efficiency and cutting the UK’s carbon emissions.
The £378,780 obtained by Zero, takes them through to Phase 2 of the ‘Heat Network Small Business Research Initiative Competition’ which was launched by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
ZERO’s MD Finian Parrick said; “This is brilliant news, as it means our development team can move forward with our project to encourage the use of heat networks and to help drive down energy bills and boost low carbon heat supplies in the UK. We are passionate about advancing low carbon heating technologies and this grant will help us to do exactly that.”
Finian continues: “We are very grateful for the support of Granted through this whole process, without whom we would never have had the time, capability or resources to achieve this. We have been working with Granted for the last five years and their support and expertise in writing informed, intelligent grant applications is worth its weight in gold.”
Alex Chalkley, Granted Director, comments: “We love working with clients such as ZERO, who are pioneers in their industry. We are ideally placed to keep clients like ZERO up to date with the very latest funding streams to support their efforts. We look forward to working with ZERO and other firms on the Innovation 4 Growth Grant, due to launch this summer, which will provide between £25,000 to £150,000 to support businesses in the South West to develop innovative products, processes and services.”
