(25 November 2010)
The Thermal Controller, designed by Durham Energy Institute, aims to solve a stumbling block expected to occur as the level of renewable energy we use approaches the targets committed to by UK and international governments. Other nominees for the award included innovations such as a CO and Combustible Gas Detection system and a new silicon chip technology for real-time DNA analysis.
The awards recognise the most innovative companies operating within a wide variety of engineering and technology disciplines, with winners announced in 15 categories including Asset Management, Emerging Technologies, Transport, Telecommunications and Product design.
The 2010 IET Innovation Awards attracted a record number of entries from around the globe, offering industry innovators worldwide a unique opportunity to demonstrate their innovation and imagination as they tackle their own local, economic and social challenges.
The awards culminated in a glittering awards ceremony last night at the Brewery, London, hosted by TV presenter Suzi Perry.
