Built Environment award winner 2013
CT Magnetic Refrigeration - The Future’s Green Alternative
Alex Mitchell, Head of Events at The IET received the trophy on behalf of Cooltech Applications, who were unable to attend the ceremony.
Industrialisation of the first Magnetic Refrigeration heat pump globally in 2014, B2B smart grid compatible system, no CFC gas, using up to 50% less energy.
Innovation – Ten years of applied research has allowed industrialisation of this rupture ‘refrigeration technology’, initially targeted at significant CFC and energy reduction for supermarkets globally.
The judging panel commented:
“The judges thought that this was the winner based on its relative novelty both in terms of materials science and its technological applications.
"The idea has significant market potential for many refrigeration applications worldwide ranging from domestic fridges to commercial installations. It eliminates the need for refrigerant gasses and is potentially more energy efficient and thereby reducing costs and carbon emissions."
Zero Powered Wireless Sensors for Building Condition Monitoring
Heba Bevan - The University of Cambridge
Future thinking around the Built Environment considers the development of smart infrastructures that use sensors to assess building condition and to evolve to a state of condition-based maintenance. Our wireless infrastructure monitoring sensors have been demonstrated to be world leading in being self-powered and highly reliable.
