Power electronics contributes nearly £50bn annually to the UK economy, with over 500 identifiable companies and organisations operating in this space. Critically, power electronics is becoming the key enabling technology that underpins future electrification across major sectors such as Transport, Industrial and Energy. Central to innovation in power electronics is system thinking – developing power electronics IP and products that are not simply interesting in themselves, but can have significant downstream sectoral and market impact. This award recognises innovative thinking and approach in power electronics development which can be demonstrated within one or more of the following criteria:

Award Criteria

  1. Exploiting innovative technology for market impact in systems applications.
  2. Developing solutions that meet sector and end customer requirements.
  3. Developing solutions or IP within any part of the power electronics product development supply chain that will ultimately lead to greater system-level uptake of power electronics.

The award is open to all sizes of Company from start-up / SME to large scale multinational organisations. The work can be collaborative (A2B or B2B) or single-company, but it must be innovative.

Supportive information can be included with your award submission to help the judging process illustrate points including:

  • Technology innovation summary ( pictures / Graphs / web links where necessary )
  • Evidence of delivery planning or team work.
  • End user feedback or market evidence

Application Tips

The entry should be clear – It is better to give one example in detail and list others than attempt to cover too many topics in too much detail.

Give a background – The judges will not necessarily know about your sector or business, so a brief summary of these will help them place you in context. This might include size, turnover, recent issues in the sector, nature of business and so on.

State the challenges – All applications really consist of a challenge or series of challenges that have successfully been met.

Tell the story – Once the challenges are identified, you need to tell the judges how you met or overcame them. This is the most important part of the entry, it explains the actions, the issues and the reason that this is a potential winning entry.

Use results – Judges look for evidence in success and innovation, this can be demonstrated in a number of ways but simple facts and figures often tell the story best.

Summarise and make the case – why should you win? This is the point to say and not be shy!

Write your entries before submitting them – Write your entries offline, so that you have a permanent record of them. It will then take just a few minutes to submit them through our easy-to-use online submission system

Who can apply?

The intent of the application process is to acquire sufficient evidence without being burdensome or overly bureaucratic to both applicants and judges. Award candidates are therefore encouraged to provide clear and concise information that is distinctly relevant to the award so that judges are not placed in a position of subjective interpretation. Where you have worked as part of a team be sure to make it clear in the application how your achievements have been made – judges will not be able to make decisions on inconclusive evidence and will naturally frown upon information interpreted as misleading – therefore, if you worked as part of a team be explicit about what you have done and what was contributed by the team. All accompanying information should be accurate at the time the application is submitted and should be unlikely to change adversely in a negative capacity in relation to the award before the end of the calendar year.

By submitting an application you confirm that you meet the eligibility criteria set out above.
