The Shell Springboard award to TwentyNinety is accompanied by a £20,000 prize.
TwentyNinety says its Active Array allows communication with each module in a PV array and improves performance by 20% over the lifetime of the array.
Simon Hombersley, Chairman, says: “Shell Springboard is a highly competitive scheme, and TwentyNinety’s success is a huge vote of confidence in Active Array and the company by a credible and prestigious organisation. TwentyNinety adds intelligence to photovoltaics, and through the award Shell Springboard recognises the innovation and commercial potential of Active Array.”
The Shell Springboard programme has awarded over £1.6 million to 54 UK small businesses since it launched in 2005, helping small cleantech companies.
