Low Carbon Heating for East Devon District Council

  • Provide low carbon heating to 12,000 homes in East Devon.
  • Support growth in Cranbrook New Town and address climate emergency.
  • Project management for all work streams.
  • Coordinated technical, commercial, legal, procurement, and financial aspects.
  • Implemented PRINCE2 methodology for effective negotiations and business case development.
  • Achieved 7,200 t/c02 carbon savings per year.
  • Established a social fund for financial hardship relief.
  • Connected existing heat networks for resilience and carbon benefits.
  • Secured government funding of £7m for further network expansion.

I have been incredibly pleased with the Project Management support from Anthesis. We have sought this support as we do not have the capacity in-house to support our district heating projects.

Anthesis have developed excellent working relationships with the project team (consultants), officer group, and our elected members. They have ensured that marked progress is made week-on-week, providing the right level of support and challenge to the officer group, as required.

In all honesty I doubt we would have made the progress we have seen without the support of Anthesis.

We were pleased to work with the Anthesis team on this project and are very happy with the support they provided. The team’s expertise in SBTs in Private Equity, combined with their attentiveness to our needs, made us comfortable to commit to the SBTi. They also made the submission process to the SBTi very smooth by helping out with the application to fulfil all requirements.
