Product and Innovation Awards
Interested in sponsoring these categories?
These awards recognise outstanding new and/or innovative products that will make significant contributions to improving building performance.
Energy Saving Product or Innovation of the Year
This award recognises solutions that help to reduce energy loads and make a significant contribution to improving building performance. These innovative solutions will not use energy directly, but will significantly reduce the energy demand of the building into which they are incorporated (could include phase change materials, novel insulation or glazing products, blinds or shading devices, software tools or digital services that reduce energy demand or improve building performance and energy efficiency).
Energy Efficient Product or Innovation of the Year
This award recognises building services solutions that reduce the amount of energy used in buildings through the efficient use of energy by the innovation itself. Such solutions will score highly in energy rating schemes and will also contribute to improved building performance. These innovative solutions will use energy themselves or will directly reduce the energy use of a product or system to which they are added or incorporated, (could include energy efficient M&E systems or components, digital tools that directly reduce the energy demand of an M&E system or component, highly efficient renewable or low carbon energy systems, or products that can be installed or included in an M&E or building services system that directly reduce its energy consumption).
Who should enter
Product manufacturers and system designers.
Entries should be for products introduced or launched between 1 June 2015 – 31 August 2016.
The Judges will consider any product or innovation that improves building performance and saves energy and carbon, and will be looking for evidence of:
Research, testing, and development
Innovation in design, technology and/or application
Improvement over existing products in terms of performance, energy or resource (e.g. water) efficiency and carbon saving
Mitigation of the environmental impact of production
Use of recycled materials and recyclability of the product
Performance in operation as well as factory or laboratory test results
Evidence of how the product reduces carbon emissions
Clear product technical information for specifiers, designers, installers and operators
Operation and maintenance information
