SAN DIEGOAug. 9, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — ICE Thermal Harvesting, Gardner Capital Specialty Group, and VECKTA are excited to announce the successful completion of financing for the deployment of distributed energy systems across multiple industrial sectors. The committed facility of $150 million can be expanded to accommodate the growth trajectory of ICE over the next 5 years, and represents a significant step towards advancing sustainable energy generation for producers in the energy industry and beyond.

ICE Thermal’s financing facility, secured from Gardner Capital Specialty Group through the VECKTA Marketplace, will enable the deployment of cutting-edge onsite energy systems to power consumers across multiple industries. These systems, utilizing waste heat from industrial operations, will dramatically reduce energy consumption at each site by converting waste heat from operations into clean electricity. This transformational initiative will enhance operational efficiency, reduce carbon footprints, and achieve substantial cost savings for the participating companies.

“We are thrilled to be part of this collaboration that brings clean, decentralized power solutions to industrial consumers. By harvesting waste heat and converting it into emissions-free electricity, ICE is contributing to a more sustainable and efficient energy future. VECKTA made it incredibly easy to connect with Gardner, and this partnership allows us to drive innovation and make a positive impact on the global energy landscape.”

Energy is the lifeblood of businesses globally. As energy prices rise, reliability declines and carbon reduction commitments loom. Business leaders are looking for solutions. Yet the CDP reports that only 0.4% of companies have a credible energy transition plan. Why is this? In the past, business leaders did not know what is possible, where to begin, or who to turn to. That is until now.

“Businesses globally are collectively leaving billions of dollars on the table! No more pushy and biased supplier pitches or budget-squeezing consulting scopes, and no more wasting time and money exploring options but never taking action – it’s time to take control and set your business up for success. Our mission is to deploy more profitable and sustainable energy projects globally than any other company in the world. To do this we continue to surround ourselves with the best in the business and I could not be more excited about the opportunity to work with Bill and the TSV syndicate.” adds VECKTA’s Founder and CEO, Gareth Evans.
