Emissions champions highlighted by Low Carbon Innovation Awards
Applications are now open for entries into the Carbon Trust's Low Carbon Innovation Awards (LCIA) 2009.
Prizes will be handed out to those commercial enterprises that have best displayed an ability to curb their CO2 emissions at a ceremony in November 2009.
There are four categories honouring those firms creating new low-carbon technologies; namely Power, Buildings, Transport and Industrial.
Private and public-sector organisations can also receive recognition for their uptake of renewable power and energy efficiency initiatives.
John Halfpenny, chief executive of former LCIA winner CMR Fuel Cells, said: "Our progress as a business since winning the award in 2005 has been phenomenal.
"From the media coverage to the kudos associated with winning in the eyes of business and stakeholders, all have contributed to our ongoing success."
LCIA 2009 will be judged by an expert panel consisting of the UK Energy Research Council's Professor Jim Skea and Lord Sainsbury, former minister for science and innovation, among others.http://tinyurl.com/kuebk2
