The Rushlight Awards showcase innovative cleantech for the future.
Against “very strong competition”, AMEE won the peer-reviewed, lead award for Environmental Analysis and Metrology (in case you don’t know Metrology is the science of measurement).
We were also shortlisted for the Group Award for Environmental Management (which ultimately went to waste-to-energy technology company, Plasma Power)
I was also delighted that one of AMEE’s original startup team was the keynote speaker – Bryony, now Baroness(!), Worthington said: “I like to quote Alan Kay – the man credited with the invention of the personal computer – he said ‘the best way to predict the future is to invent it’. And that is why everyone in this room is here tonight – you are all involved in inventing the future.”
Now in their 5th year, the RSA-accredited Rushlight Awards are a celebration and a promotion of new technology, innovation and best practice across the whole environment spectrum for organisations throughout UK and Ireland.
Designed to highlight innovation and the holistic environmental benefit of technologies that are most likely to or are already creating a stir in the market, they are a means of disseminating the successes to support further development.
The group and overall winners will be eligible to be considered to represent the UK in the European Business Awards for the Environment 2014.
