CamSemi won this year’s award for their work on intelligent power management integrated circuits and their potential to cut energy consumption within buildings.

‘The company’s current two major product families – C2470 and C2160 – were both highlighted for significantly improving the efficiency of power supplies and as a result, helping manage the rapidly growing electricity demand within buildings from phone systems and mobile phones, IT products, audio and video equipment.’

Runners up included Novacem, who were recognised for their ‘green’ cement systems. ‘Our cement uniquely combines the sustainability of timber and the recyclability of metal with the technical properties and high thermal mass of concrete. Its use therefore minimises CO2 emissions during building construction, operation and disposal.’

And Luminanz for their ultra efficient lighting technology which ‘exploits patents for using light wave guides and air gaps to convert point source light from LEDs into acceptable light output for all forms of lighting and signage.’
