Carbon Limiting Technologies links with California’s Electric Power Research Institute to support commercialisation of UK low carbon technology sector across the pond

June, 2018

Carbon Limiting Technologies (CLT), the UK business consultancy that specialises in the low carbon/ sustainable technology sector and the main delivery partner for incubation support services to the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy’s Energy Entrepreneurs Fund, has entered a collaboration agreement with America’s Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to support its work in the UK and North America.

Through the CLT/EPRI collaboration agreement, CLT becomes the first-ever British consultancy to join EPRI’s Incubatenergy network, a consortium of clean energy focused incubators across the USA and Canada.

British early stage low carbon technology companies, in particular those companies who have received support from BEIS’s Energy Entrepreneurs Fund, will benefit from CLT’s partnership with EPRI and its Incubatenergy network.

Beverley Gower-Jones, Founder & Chief Executive of CLT said: “We will coordinate our work with EPRI in order to leverage our collective knowledge of the low carbon energy space, promote greater transparency in scientific research and development and support our British network of companies to forge commercial and technology partnerships within North America.”

“CLT, EPRI and its Incubatenergy network share a common goal to accelerate the commercialisation of the very best low-carbon technologies that are being developed on both sides of the Atlantic and which deliver sustainable environmental, social and economic benefits to the UK, the USA and around the world.” Beverley Gower-Jones and members of the CLT team will attend the EPRI/Incubatenergy “Electrification Summer Conference”, taking place in Los Angeles in August.

Beth Hartman, Project Manager at EPRI/ Incubatenergy said: “For over three years, the Incubatenergy Network has been growing with leadership from EPRI, the U.S. Department of Energy and the National Renewable Energy Lab, and we are delighted to welcome on board CLT – the network’s first UK member. The UK is doing so much in the low carbon space, and CLT’s knowledge and experience will be invaluable to our work in the USA and Canada.”

CARBON LIMITING TECHNOLOGIES WINS UK GOVERNMENT CONTRACT TO SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT OF LOW CARBON ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES

December, 2016

Carbon Limiting Technologies (CLT), the business consultancy that specialises in the low carbon/ sustainable technology sector, has been re-appointed as the main delivery partner for incubation support services to the Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) Energy Entrepreneurs Fund, part of the BEIS Energy Innovation Programme.

The Energy Entrepreneurs Fund (EEF) is a BEIS competitive funding scheme to support the development and demonstration of state-of-the-art technologies, products and processes in the areas of energy efficiency, power generation, and heat and electricity storage.

As the main delivery partner to BEIS, CLT will help ensure that companies achieve maximum commercial impact from an EEF grant, assisting these companies on their route from start-up/early stage mode towards commercialisation. A key part of CLT’s work will be business planning, in order to increase the chances and the speed of bringing British low-carbon technologies to market.

Beverley Gower-Jones, co-founder and Chief Executive of Carbon Limiting Technologies said: “The EEF has been a great success, with more than £38m awarded to over 80 British companies to date. A good number of companies, that have received CLT’s support through the EEF, are now making significant progress in the commercial world.

“Our work will help the next generation of the UK’s low carbon tech community to achieve commercialisation, which means for this country: job creation, skills development, exports and new investment opportunities. BEIS knows that a transition to a low carbon future, where the UK meets its carbon reduction commitments, will only happen if British innovation reaches market.”

CLT was re-appointed after a competitive tender process and it will lead a consortium of firms to deliver the work programme over the next three years. The CLT consortium members are Amec Foster Wheeler, Arup, Carbon Trust and WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff.

CLT was established 10 years ago to support the commercialisation of low carbon/clean technology. As well as being the principal delivery organisation for BEIS’s Energy Entrepreneurs Fund and its Low Carbon Innovation programme, CLT has also delivered business support programmes for the European Regional Development Fund.
