Here's some feedback from CFG members, clients and partners relating to initiatives that we have been involved with.
Electric Corby first approached the Carbon Free Group (CFG) to help develop an energy strategy for a pilot project called “ZEB1 (Zero Energy Bills)”. Through engagement with CFG and its members it was possible to pull together both the team and the technologies to ensure that the project could be successfully implemented and the best possible project outcome achieved.
This collaborative process has led to the creation of Glendale Ecohomes, an SPV created by the consortium of CFG members to deliver, zero-carbon smart homes at a scale and cost to compete with mainstream housing development. This would not have been possible without extensive knowledge base and network made available to us through Carbon Free Group membership.
The Big Clean Switch campaign is an active supporter of the mission and purpose of the Carbon Free Group. Our membership provides us with access to thought leaders, clean technology innovations in the sector, introductions to new opportunities, plus insight and leadership through their ongoing event series. CFG provides flexible opportunities for SMEs like ourselves to join as members and we’d encourage other small businesses to also get involved.
Clean Energy UK supports the Carbon Free Group mission to decarbonise the built environment. Our SME membership and partnership provides us with access to new opportunities for encouraging business to transition to clean energy. We are currently in the process of developing a working agreement to ensure CFG members are encouraged to investigate the potential benefits of switching their business to a clean, renewable supply.
Jae’s key note presentation opened IEMA’s and GACSO’s Sustainability Conference with a bang! Compelling and hard hitting and almost impossible to argue with. Rich with data and intelligence, this was high octane stuff beautifully delivered with passion and humour. A wonderful way to start a conference.
The Carbon Free Group and HermeticaBlack have recently collaborated on independent research into Modern Methods of Construction, mainly focused on Off Site Manufacturing and its application for sustainable housing. Anthony Morgan of the Carbon Free Group provided invaluable insight and support which resulted in a big value report that the client was very pleased with. We continue to collaborate with the Carbon Free Group in this area and are looking to develop and deliver a disruptive solution for a number of clients. This would not have been possible without input from Anthony and the Carbon Free Group
Tufeco joined Carbon Free Group in 2014 to help support our innovative panel product as we promote this to clients. The collaborative nature of Carbon Free Group has also enabled us access new technologies and has introduced us to new suppliers so that our houses can achieve zero carbon at the same or lower cost than traditional construction. Carbon Free Group has also put Tufeco into contact with clients and investors. I strongly recommend joining CFG.
