Introducing Ignite with Ebico

To bring more cleantech solutions to the market and fight fuel poverty in the UK, the Ebico Trust has partnered with venture-builders Sustainable Ventures to create Ignite with Ebico. This voucher scheme is open to UK cleantech start-ups that are developing low-carbon, low-cost home heating solutions.

Successful innovators will receive between £5,000 and £10,000 worth of development support.
