“We are supporting businesses through the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) scheme, helping them to unlock the potential of the latest biomass energy technologies. This can support growth and expansion through the provision of reliable, low cost and sustainable energy.

“We are now well placed to expand both the business and scope of services we offer to secure our targets, further cementing our reputation for innovation and added value solutions this year and beyond.”
