Grant to work with the Irish Green Building Council for a more sustainable built environment

We are delighted to be partnering with the Irish Green Building Council (IGBC) for a more sustainable built environment. Through this partnership, Grant will support 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 instal 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 and 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.”

Looking to the future and continuing to lead the low carbon transition, over the past six years our 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 our oil boilers to be biofuel compatible.

The recently launched Knowledge Hub reinforces our commitment to education by providing homeowners with 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.
