Entry Form Product and Innovation Awards Both awards recognise outstanding new products or innovations that will make significant contributions to improving building performance. Entries should be for products or innovations introduced or launched between 1 June 2016 – 31 August 2017. Please read the definition of each Award and select the one that best suits your product or innovation. The judges reserve the right to move entries from one category to another if they feel it is appropriate.
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).
