“BEIS financial support has been critical in the development of Virtu, Naked Energy’s system which produces combined heat and power from the sun to make better use of available rooftop space, while also improving the return on investment. We have now completed the first stage of our commercial trials, working in collaboration with Sainsbury’s as they look for innovative solutions to achieve their sustainability goals. Naked Energy is now looking forward to growing its business both in the UK and internationally as it commences the next phase of this exciting journey.”

Government’s clean energy drive invests £35 million in innovative projects

July 5th, 2017

Speaking at the Rushlight Summer Showcase, Minister of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Claire Perry announced funding for 2 innovative clean energy projects which will create local investment opportunities across the country.

 

 

Rushlight, a leading provider of clean technology events in the UK, hosts the Summer Showcase which is sponsored by BEIS and Innovate UK. At the event, Claire Perry announced that £35 million funding, from the BEIS Energy Innovation Programme, will go towards smart heating systems and innovation in using hydrogen as a potential heat source.

 

 

As a recipient of grant funding from BEIS, the Minister was introduced to Naked Energy at the event.  Company Directors, Christophe Williams and Nicholas Simmons were able to highlight the progress made with the BEIS support and also provide deeper understanding of the breakthrough design of Virtu.

Under the new investment, £10 million will sponsor the second phase of work by the Energy Systems Catapult on its Smart Systems and Heat Programme. The programme will help develop local energy plans alongside Local Authorities, and bring down the cost of energy bills, while supporting the development of the UK’s low carbon heating projects.

A further £25 million will be invested in potential uses of hydrogen gas for heating, testing the possibility of domestic gas pipes for hydrogen and developing a range of innovative hydrogen appliances such as boilers and cookers.

Minister of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Claire Perry said:

“The UK government is committed to leading the world in delivering clean energy technology and today’s investment shows that we are prepared to support innovation in this critical area.

Our aim is for the UK to be a global leader in innovation, science and research and our Industrial Strategy will help us to deliver our ambitious CO2 reduction targets while, creating jobs and opportunities for people across the country.”

This investment follows the government’s commitment to double energy innovation investments set out in the Industrial Strategy green paper, to £400 million per year by 2021.
