The WSSET Innovation Awards recognise the achievements of private individuals and organisations in new sustainable technologies and encourage the wider application of these new developments. Innovative ideas are welcome in any of the following areas:

  1. Renewable energy systems (e.g., solar, wind and biomass)
  2. Power generation technologies (e.g., CHP systems, fuel cells and anaerobic digestion plants)
  3. Energy efficiency (e.g., heat pumps and hybrid solar/gas systems)
  4. Low carbon buildings and future cities (e.g., low/zero carbon buildings, sustainable cities)
  5. Water treatment and desalination (e.g., solar water desalination)
  6. Sustainable materials (e.g., innovative composite materials and aerogels)
  7. Waste management and water recycling (e.g., households and construction waste management)
  8. Agri-food technologies (e.g., innovative greenhouses and food drying)

Here are the winners of the past 3 years.
