A Glasgow-headquartered green energy specialist has secured investment of up to £100,000 to scale the business across Scotland.

Aventus Eco – installers of green energy solutions, heat pumps, and solar and battery storage – secured the backing from Scottish tech entrepreneur, Ed Broussard.

The investment comes as Scotland targets more than one million homes being connected to a zero or low emission heating system by 2030, with the backing set to be used to scale Aventus Eco’s operations, as well as creating new jobs and enhancing its training offering.

Commenting on the investment, Aventus Eco MD, Sean Hogan, said, “We’re focused on helping homeowners get great quality solar, heat pump, and battery installs that save them money and decarbonise their home. This investment allows us to scale the business, bringing highly trained engineers to our customers who are entirely focused on green technologies.

“When systems like air source heat pumps and solar panels aren’t installed properly, they can get a bad name. We’re here to change that by providing expert installation, quality workmanship, and educating our customers. We’re not just about getting the job done.”

Mr Broussard added, “To get close to the governments targets and make a significant impact on decarbonisation we need to go much faster as a country. For many of the homes in Scotland, you will be able decarbonise your home without upfront costs and start making monthly savings immediately.” 

The investment isn’t Mr Broussard’s first step into home decarbonisation. In 2023, he backed heating engineer training and technology company, Heat Geek.

He continued, “To successfully decarbonise the country’s heating we need tech hyper-scalers like Heat Geek who are pioneering new technology to make installations cheaper, faster, and more efficient. But we also need highly skilled installers in the local area who can carry out the work in your home. That’s why I’ve backed Aventus Eco and see it as so important to Scotland’s decarbonisation journey.” 

Mr Hogan added, “All of our heat pump installs will be led by Heat Geek trained installers. To maximise the efficiencies which lead to savings, its vital customers get optimal system designs by the highest trained installers in the business. That’s exactly what we’re focused on delivering.”
