The ACT Blade team have successfully won a Mid-stage Energy Catalyst Award from Innovate UK. A government run funding competition designed to accelerate British progress within the renewable energy sector, Innovate UK aims to offer financial help to companies who are developing possible solutions to the energy ‘trilemma’. This energy trilemma denotes the three main challenges which the global energy industry is currently facing – namely, reduction of carbon, security of supply and affordability. ACT Blade has been recognised as an innovative product which has the potential to address all three of these problems. The funding we have won from the competition will be spent on prototype testing.
