Zero carbon solutions for business, industry & the built environment

Planet A Solutions is a Social Enterprise working exclusively to alleviate climate change through direct reduction of green house gas emissions

Our vision is to build a healthier future, where buildings and businesses operate in balance with the natural world.

Planet A is designed to aid the transition for businesses and organisations, to adapt to operating practices which reduce and eliminate fossil fuel use.

Our team is made up of engineers, architects and solutions developers. In this capacity we work to provide engineering solutions to supply zero carbon heat, power and transport.

On 8th October 2018, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a vital report on the state of climate science.

The Report notes that a rise in global temperatures of 1.5C would result in devastating consequences.

Together, we need to do all we can to keep emissions down to a 1.5 degree increase or less, with a target of zero carbon by 2030.

Really pleased with the service and expertise provided by Planet A on their thorough energy modelling and due diligence work relating to a dynamic new business opportunity for Treveth. This will enable us to better utilise renewable energy on our future schemes, for the benefit of residents and tenants, as well as securing significant carbon savings.

Greg SlaterTreveth, RIBA | Head of Design, Decarbonisation & Environment

We have worked with Planet A on a number of educational and training initiatives related to sustainable energy systems and Planet A demonstrate keen insights into the energy landscape. Recently the university commissioned Planet A to design and deliver a short, CPD-type course focused on renewable energy systems integration whereby Planet A did a fantastic job with this course. Feedback from attendees and employers was great I am keen to thank Planet A for their contributions. I have no hesitation in recommending Planet A to deliver engineering and training solutions.

The technical expertise in energy solutions and modelling, as well as the exceptional project management and collaborative working that the Planet A team delivered, meant that WREN were able to deliver the outcomes and meet the aims of the Net Zero Communities project for our client, National Grid Electricity Distribution. The work that Planet A completed underpinned all of the decisions made around viable net zero options for our community, new community business models and the development of the Future Energy System Tool, which is now being used by community energy groups across England & Wales. The Planet A team are true professionals in what they do and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with them again in the future.

Our retrofit research project wouldn’t be the same without Planet A on board. Further to great work ethics they are renown for, and exceptional adaptability even during last year’s Covid restrictions, they brought a great deal of technical knowledge to the team and solid local connections to facilitate the resolution of many issues. Looking forward to the next collaboration!

Planet A delivered an insightful and comprehensive analysis of green hydrogen production which is now being used as the basis for funding applications to progress hydrogen infrastructure projects in the south west. The work included a detailed review of costs and opportunities together with full discounted cash flow analysis which highlighted key areas of business potential.

Planet A conducted an investigation on compliance requirements for our Australian designed product to enter the UK market. David and Amanda were a pleasure to deal with; very professional, transparent and clear communicators. They successfully navigated the various regulatory bodies, government departments and compliance consultants to provide clear direction to our business.
