Stephen Redmond MD commented; “We are extremely grateful for the assistance provided by the Hertfordshire Growth Hub. This award will support our innovations to the decarbonisation of buildings heating and ventilation to address the climate challenge of zero carbon emissions. This is particularly important as buildings account for one-third of all emissions across Europe and about eighty percent of existing buildings will still be around in 2050. We hope our efforts will help Hertfordshire become one of the best performing regions on climate improvement initiatives in the UK”.
