At GS Renewable, we're incredibly proud of our co-founder, Thomas Vaughan. His background in agriculture instilled in him a deep passion for addressing climate change from the very start of his career. Thomas's commitment to the cause is evident in the 22,000 trees he personally planted to offset carbon emissions, reflecting our core mission's dedication to combating climate change.
In 2010, Thomas teamed up with Erik Vaughan to launch GS Renewable. Both of them are recognised as award-winning mechanical engineers, and together they saw the immense potential of heat pump technology in reducing environmental impact. Since then, GS Renewable has become known as a pioneering force in integrated renewable technologies, specialising in advanced heat pump solutions.
The year 2019 brought a significant shift for GS Renewable, driven by the changes brought about by the pandemic. We redefined our focus, prioritising 'plug and play' modular heat pump plant rooms while retaining our consultancy and service maintenance arms. It's worth noting that these modular plant rooms represent over two decades of award-winning design expertise.
Our commitment to sustainability and innovation has made us an industry leader, and it's something we're incredibly proud of. We were even invited to participate as panelists at COP, where we engaged in meaningful discussions with our peers on tackling climate change within the heating and cooling sector.
At GS Renewable, our mission is crystal clear: to play our part in limiting global temperature increases to 1.5°C. We actively collaborate across various sectors and are proud members of the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA), SEAI Ireland, and Green Tech Alliance.
In 2022 when GS Renewable was selected as one of the top 25 companies in Europe to participate in the European Union-backed Climate-KIC Programme. This signifies our crucial role in shaping a circular economy for Europe and underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainable progress.
