Upside Energy have been announced winners of the 2016 Innovation Competition at edieLive, the energy, sustainability and resource efficiency conference held at the NEC Birmingham 17-18 May.
Upside Energy beat nine other forward-thinking companies to win a £6,000 support package, which includes 25 hours of commercialisation support services, from edieLive’s innovation partners Pennington Manches and CLT, for its innovative cloud-based service.
Commenting on the initiative, the Innovation Zone judges said:
“This innovation is so much more than a tech launch. It has real impact and huge potential for adoption at scale. It addresses a critical problem, drives immediate results and, crucially, could unlock exponential ‘ripple-effect’ innovation elsewhere.
Plus, the collaborative approach includes some great partners and creates genuine engagement with the end user, both as energy users and energy generators.”
