Gravis and two of GCP Infrastructure’s renewable energy assets won accolades last month.
Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards
The company was recognised at the Electric Vehicle Innovation and Excellence Awards (EVIEs) for its financing of UK-based SolarCatcher, a pioneering developer of EV-integrated solar parking canopies.
The project involves building solar-powered canopies to house EV charging stations in school car parks and across the public estate. This benefits the public sector landlord, by using their existing car parks to generate renewable electricity, helping them to decarbonise their operations. Furthermore, by providing EV charging at work this helps to attract and retain employees whilst supporting the staff in decarbonising their own footprint.
SolarCatcher were also awarded the prize for the Best New Product (C&I and Public).
Best Large-Scale Energy Project
Meanwhile, Eden Geothermal, a a business co-funded by the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund and Cornwall Council, with commercial funding from Gravis Capital Management, was awarded the first ever Fully Charged Award 2023.
The project looks to decarbonise the heat supply to the world-famous Biomes, new commercial greenhouses and other buildings at the Eden Project by creating a deep geothermal heating system.
It beat off international competition from projects in Norway, Finland, The Netherlands, Portugal, China and the UK, to win the Best Large-Scale Energy Project category.
These were the first ‘consumer choice’ awards for clean energy and electric vehicles, voted for by electric cars drivers. There were 15 categories in total, with other winners including, Tesla, Porsche, Fiat, VW and Octopus Energy.
