i2O Water win Rushlight Awards 2012–2013
Eventure Media presented the 6th Rushlight Awards at a sumptuous Gala Dinner at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London. Attended by companies and organizations that are leading the way in clean technology, investors, city advisers, specialist and general media, trade associations and government departments, the dinner followed, for the 4th year, the very successful Rushlight Show.
The key note speech at the dinner was given by Greg Barker, Minister of State for Energy & Climate Change.
The minister said: “Innovation is a key driver for growth across our green economy and beyond, helping us find new ways to cut carbon, reduce costs and help put our businesses on a more sustainable footing. It’s great to see so many organisations stepping up to this challenge, and I would like to congratulate the winners of the Rushlight Awards on their exciting new ventures.”
The overall winner was i2O Water who have developed an Advanced Pressure Management system which allows water companies proactively and remotely to manage pressure and improve the performance and life span of their networks. The system delivers the required level of water pressure, adapting continuously to actual usage and pressure needs, resulting in leakage reduction; burst frequency reduction; energy consumption savings; network asset life extension; lower operational costs and improved customer service.
The judges commented: “Innovative and addressing the economic loss through water leakage. It is proven in the field and widely deployed already providing water, carbon and financial savings.”
The group category winners were:
• Newform Energy have developed a hybrid solar solution that combines PV, solar thermal and heat pumps which results in an aggregate system output that far exceeds the sum of the outputs from the separate technologies.
• G-volution Ltd have developed technology, which has been installed in over 50 trucks in the UK, which enables a modern diesel engine to be multi-fuelled, combining diesel with natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas or hydrogen. Through emulation, the diesel injection signal is replicated which ensures there is no over-powering or over-torquing.
• Sentec and Selex ES have developed GridKey to provide a low cost, accurate monitoring solution that can be retrofitted without interruption to allow the Distribution Network Operators to have visibility of their low voltage network. This will allow optimisation of low carbon technology deployment without unnecessary investment in the grid.
• Loowatt Ltd who have developed a waterless toilet system that seals human waste into biodegradable polymer film for anaerobic digestion. The digester converts the waste into biogas and digestate, a nutrient-rich liquid that is further treated to be sold as fertiliser. The biogas is used directly as fuel or converted to electricity.
• Xeros have developed an ultra low water cleaning system involving Xeros polymer beads used in a special washing machine designed to release the beads into the drum for washing and then removing the beads from the clothes when the cleaning is complete. Up to 80% less water, 50% less energy and 50% less detergent is used compared with conventional aqueous washing.
