Building on work already underway through Frazer-Nash Consultancy, a KBR company, the Department for Energy Security and Net Zero ("DESNZ") has extended the value of its support contract, originally awarded in December 2021, as part of the UK's £1bn Net Zero Innovation Portfolio.
Frazer-Nash Consultancy supports DESNZ to develop its programs, and to assess and monitor the projects being delivered within the portfolio. In addition, the company will continue to provide energy generation and distribution technical support in areas including hydrogen, nuclear, offshore wind, onshore wind, bioenergy, heat pumps and retrofit, heat distribution, biomass boilers and solar heating.
