Our projects strive for innovation and quality employing conventional, renewable, and emerging technologies as appropriate for our clients. Recent projects include solar photovoltaics, electricity storage, low temperature heat networks, low carbon heat generation, hydrogen for transport, biomass CHP projects, energy recovery facilities, and gas CHP plants for horticulture involving the capture of CO2, energy market reserves, university/healthcare campuses and data centres.
