SEaB Energy has been selected for the RBS Innovation Gateway after a ‘Dragons den with a twist’ pitch.
The successful means pitch the company will now secure a trial of our award-winning, patented technology on the RBS estate in conjunction with the banking giant’s partners; Carillion, BaxterStory and the University of Cambridge (Engineering Dept).
The RBS Innovation Gateway, which is led by Marcela Navarro, Head of Customer Innovation at RBS, has three aims; to help RBS save more energy, water and waste, to nurture new, brilliant innovations and to help local inventors take their ideas to market.
Sandra Sassow, CEO of SEaB Energy, said: “This is excellent news for our company and demonstrates that the demand for innovative solutions, that addresses both energy and waste, is growing rapidly”.
“Our micro-power plants turn food and bio waste into energy directly on the site of where the waste is produced. This not only reduces the business’ energy requirements from the grid, but also eliminates the costly collection and disposal of the waste”, added Sandra.
SEaB Energy has enjoyed whirlwind growth over the last two year and has benefitted from winning a host of recognised industry awards and securing several lucrative government grants that has helped it establish a new R&D facility in Romsey and create additional jobs in the Solent area.
With its products now market-ready, the company is now experiencing significant interest from businesses looking for localised energy solutions.
“We are thrilled to be one of a small number of companies selected for this prestigious program and will undoubtedly help us accelerate our growth both in the UK and abroad”, added Sandra Sassow.
SEaB Energy was one of over 140 companies from across the UK who submitted an idea to the RBS Innovation Gateway when the bank launched the project in March this year.
