Deadline for entering the UK's premier clean tech awards is Friday 6 October
The UK's top clean tech firms have just under two weeks to submit their entries for the BusinessGreen Technology Awards and be in with a chance winning one of the UK's most prestigious green business awards.
The deadline for entries for this year's awards is 5pm on Friday October 6th with the shortlist will be announced in mid-October.
The awards ceremony and lunch will take place on the afternoon of Friday December 1st at the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in Central London. It will bring together leading clean tech firms, start-ups, investors, and entrepreneurs to celebrate the exciting progress made by the sector in the past year and highlight some of the most inspiring technologies being developed and deployed in the UK today.
Hosted in association with category sponsor Withers and Rogers and Clean+Cool, the awards are open to any company, research body, investor, or innovator with a presence in the UK.
Entries will be judged by our panel of expert judges from across the green economy, including last year's Lifetime Achievement Awards winner Richard Miller, TechUK's Susanne Baker, Dr Mike Pitts from InnovateUK, and Sustainable Ventures' Andrew Wordsworth.
Tim Cornelius, chief executive at Atlantis Resources, the marine energy developer that won the Marine Energy Technology of the Year and coveted Technology of the Year Award title at last year's ceremony, said the awards represented a "fantastic accolade" for clean tech pioneers.
"For Atlantis Resources to win the 2016 BusinessGreen Marine Energy Technology Award was a great endorsement of our leading approach to tidal energy," he said. "We were delighted to be recognised in the industry and wish this year's entrants the best of luck competing for this fantastic accolade."
Meanwhile, Tevva Motors, which last year won Transport Technology of the Year for its range-extending technology for trucks, said the awards helped boost its profile across the industry.
"Winning a BusinessGreen Technology Award consolidated Tevva's position as a leader in low carbon clean tech," sales and marketing director David Thackray said in a statement. "The calibre of entrants shortlisted in this category demonstrates just how competitive this coveted award was, and reaffirms just how delighted we were to participate and win."
"BusinessGreen consistently creates both thought provoking and forward thinking content and delivers timely sustainable news across key industries such as ours," he added. "The events and awards organised by BusinessGreen enable cross-industry networking and have helped us build our industry profile."
