Innovation of the Year; processes and projects - Energy Awards 2018
Our innovation categories seek to throw the spotlight on new ideas across the energy sector.
Given the broad range of innovation in the sector, although this category is called ‘processes and projects’ for simplicity, it is defined to reflect any innovation that is not a product or technology, which has its own category. So anything goes – you just have to convince the judges how it is innovative: Entrants will need to explain how the innovation came about, what the implications are and show evidence of the differences it has made.
In no more than 1,000 words, please tell the judges why your entry should win.
Bear in mind that this entry is the main way to convince judges, who will not know the detail as intimately as you do, so it is important to set out a structured ‘pitch’, with evidence to back up any claims. The two main criticisms in judges’s feedback from past awards is ‘Did not provide enough a strong enough argument as to why they should win’ and ‘No data or evidence to back up claims.’
Jan 2017-May 2018
Please consider the following elements, where possible, in your entry:
- Provide a clear description of the project, innovation or technology and its application
- Describe the concept, and the development and delivery where relevant
- In what way is this innovative?
- What is the environmental benefit?
- Are there other benefits beyond energy efficiency/reduction?
- Are there other applications, current or potential, and for projects and processes how repeatable is it?
