Innovative clean technology solutions come under the spotlight

Posted on: 06/04/2017

Rushlight Summer Showcase offers an opportunity to learn about the latest sustainable innovations and clean technologies.

The term ‘clean technology’ refers to products, services or processes that reduce the use of natural resources, for example by using recycled or renewable sources, cutting harmful emissions and waste, and generally mitigating negative environmental impacts. There are many examples for clean technologies, including renewable energy technologies such as biofuels and solar power, green chemistry, and electric motors.

The Rushlight Summer Showcase takes place on Tuesday 20 June 2017 at the Royal Geographical Society, 1 Kensington Gore, London. It is THE marketplace that brings together cleantech developers and sustainable solution providers, with investors & financiers and businesses looking to source suppliers and partners for an improved level of sustainability in their supply chain and operations. Kindly sponsored and supported by Innovate UK, BEIS and Enterprise Ireland, it is a new event, following on from the highly successful Rushlight Show which has just had its 8th year and attracted 500 cleantech CEOs and entrepreneurs, investors and financiers, advisers, corporate customers and others involved in the sector.

Cleantech companies can apply for one of the remaining presentation slots in the Conference Showcase to panels of investors, corporate venturers, partners and corporate customers. There are also a very limited number of stands available in the Exhibition area.

The highlights include:

  • Conference, opened by the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy, where 40 cleantech companies will be presenting to a large audience looking to learn about the latest sustainable innovations and clean technologies.
  • The latest announcements from BEIS on funding for cleantech businesses.
  • Announcements about a range of new funding rounds by Innovate UK, which will be of direct interest to cleantech companies.
  • The Exhibition incorporating the Innovate UK Energy Catalyst Round 3 Showcase.
