BasePower wins Rushlight Clean Technology Award for on-site energy generation

Basepower has been crowned a winner at the Rushlight Awards, the prestigious annual awards for leading companies in clean technology innovation and sustainable solution development.

In Rushlight’s 10th anniversary year, BasePower was judged the winner in the "Power Generation and Transmission” category.

BasePower was recognised for successfully combining Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology with a fully financed build, own and operate model into a unique solution, making on-site power generation an attractive option for large energy users. BasePower’s first two projects in the food manufacturing and automotive sectors, which will considerably reduce energy consumption, costs and carbon emissions, were cited as examples in the entry.

John Loughhead, Chief Scientific Adviser to the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, presented BasePower with the award at the Rushlight Awards ceremony, which took place at the Royal College of Surgeons on 25 January. 

Rushlight is the only set of awards specifically designed to support and promote the latest clean technologies, innovations, initiatives and deployment projects for businesses and other organisations throughout UK, Ireland and internationally.
