Maximise your chance of funding success

We identify technology partners, investors, and public sources of funding to support your technology strategy. We help you prepare the best possible submission to maximise your chance of winning funding using our proven ability to prepare concise, clear applications that clearly communicate complex issues.

We attend design reviews and conduct failure modes effects analyses. We project manage technology development and assist procurement.

We are also happy to join consortia looking for funding that need a partner that can provide robust, independent and advice about how to succeed in the renewable energy market.

A range of current open funding rounds are listed below – if you are interested in involving us in your project, including helping you to write a good bid, please email Mike Blanch.
