eatricity Ltd is delighted to announce our selection as a Finalist for the 2016 Shell Springboard awards. This brings the possibility of a financial prize but, perhaps more importantly, it raises the profile of our efforts to cut the cost and carbon consequence of energy conversion for the generation of power and production of fresh water by desalination. It is fabulous news and a great start to 2016.
Shell Springboard provides funding to UK entrepreneurs at the cutting-edge of the low-carbon economy. In 2016 funding awards of up to £150,000 are available for small enterprises with innovative, commercially viable business ideas that reduce carbon emissions.
Since launching in 2005, the Shell Springboard programme has awarded approximately £3 million to 86 dynamic enterprises. The big ideas coming out of these small businesses are not only helping to create a lower carbon, higher energy future – they are creating a new wave of jobs and growth.
