Countdown to IET Innovation Awards

The clock is ticking towards this year’s IET Innovation Awards on 19th November at the Brewery in London, which will be hosted by TV technology presenter Kate Russell, who appears on the BBC’s technology programme Click.
Last year, ABB was able to celebrate an award win itself as its ENVILINE Energy Recuperation System (ERS) was awarded the prize in the transport category, with the judging panel commenting: “The new solution, launched this year, offers a huge opportunity to improve the energy-efficiency and sustainability of rail transportation systems.”

ABB is once again sponsoring the Sustainability category, which recognises innovations that meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. Past winners of the award include systems that recover energy and a biodegradable packaging material.
This year, the awards are growing in scope as the IET has marked the 10th year of the awards scheme with a brand new category on Manufacturing Technology, which is supported by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.
David Hughes, head of ABB’s Power Products business in the UK said: “The awards are a great showcase of the very best in new technology and I’m looking forward to the night.”
