Grant Partners With Irish Green Building Council

Construction News Image
Grant has announced a new partnership with the Irish Green Building Council (IGBC), which will see the leading home heating solutions company supporting the IGBC in accelerating the decarbonisation of residential heating.

Pat Barry CEO at the Irish Green Building Council said: "Decarbonising our homes is critical to reach carbon neutrality. As it currently stands, the residential sector accounts for about one quarter of the energy used in Ireland. Grant is the first heating company to join our organisation as a partner member and we are looking forward to working with them to support the decarbonisation of our built environment."

Speaking about the partnership Stephen Grant, Founder of Grant, added: "We are delighted to join the Irish Green Building Council, bringing over four decades of knowledge, innovation and expertise in the heating industry. We are committed to the decarbonisation of residential heating and will continue to focus on helping homeowners throughout Ireland reduce their carbon footprint and future-proof their homes."

The Government Climate Action plan requires Ireland to install 600,000 heat pumps by 2030. To make the shift to heat pump technology, Grant is ramping up education of installers, architects, engineers and local authorities, offering free CPDs.

Niall Fay, Director at Grant commented: "We look forward to working together with the Irish Green Building Council and fellow members, to educate homeowners but also installers, architects, engineers and local authorities alike, on how making the shift to renewable. Heat pump technology can deliver a fully decarbonised, resource efficient home heating system, whilst also allowing long term cost saving and increased comfort."

Grant has been at the cutting edge of sustainable and innovative product development for over 40 years and during this time has expanded its product portfolio to include a wide range of renewable heating technologies including air to water, air source heat pumps, solar thermal panels, underfloor heating, hot water cylinders, aluminium radiators, and condensing wood pellet boilers.

The company's introduction of its Grant Vortex condensing oil boiler was the catalyst for a sustained increase in boiler efficiencies throughout the industry and a reduction in running costs for homeowners. The higher efficiencies from these appliances have, over the past 15 years, contributed to a reduction in carbon emissions in Ireland amounting to many millions of tonnes.

Looking to the future and continuing to lead the low carbon transition, over the past six years the Grant R&D team has worked with third level institutions, industry partners and renewable fuel producers, focusing on more sustainable and carbon saving fuels and innovating its oil boilers to be biofuel compatible.

Further demonstrating its commitment to education, Grant has recently launched a new Knowledge Hub section on its website. Dedicated to giving homeowners easy access to information and advice to help them make informed decisions when selecting heating technologies to best suit their needs, the Knowledge Hub emphasises the importance of making sustainable home heating choices.
