The awarding winning journal BusinessGreen has launched a new series of free-to-enter ‘Technology Awards’ aimed specifically at recognising the ground breaking work companies are doing to develop low carbon technology.

Following on from the success and popularity of the BusinessGreen Leaders Awards, in which the APC won ‘NGO of the Year‘ award for 2015, the ceremony aims to promote low carbon technology from across all sectors, including transport.

The Transport Technology of the Year award is open to any transport-related technology that promises to curb the environmental impact of the auto, aviation, or shipping sectors, be it through reduced air pollution, enhanced fuel efficiency, improved resource efficiency, and/or cuts to carbon emissions.

The judges are looking for highly innovative technologies that can be applied at scale and will deliver tangible environmental benefits for the transport sector. The deadline for submission is Friday 2 October with the award ceremony taking place at a secret location in London and will be announced soon.

The full list of categories is:

  • App of the Year
  • Consumer Gadget of the Year – Readers’ choice award
  • R&D Programme of the Year
  • Building Technology of the Year
  • Social Impact Technology of the Year
  • Transport Technology of the Year
  • Solar Innovation of the Year
  • Wind Energy Innovation of the Year
  • Marine Energy Innovation of the Year
  • Biotechnology of the Year
  • Smart Grid Technology of the Year
  • Clean and Cool Award for International Impact
  • Future City Technology of the Year
  • Circular Economy Innovation of the Year
  • Breakthrough of the Year
  • Innovator of the Year
  • Technology of the Year – to be selected from the winners of all the other categories

It has been an innovative year in the automotive sector with the continued investment in the UK automotive industry demonstrating that the UK is an attractive place to do business.

To date, the APC has invested in 10 major low carbon propulsion projects worth more than £174 million which will secure or create more than 4,500 jobs in the UK and reduce CO2 emissions by more than 12 million tonnes, equivalent to the CO2 emissions from 630,000 new cars, every year, for the next 12 years.
