Hosted by Innovator Capital – 15th March 2018
CleanEquity® Monaco 2018, the forum for emerging sustainable technology companies, hosted by Innovator Capital and the Monaco Economic Board, closed on Friday, 9th March with the Awards Ceremony in the presence of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
An independent panel of judges, chaired by His Serene Highness, selected Superdielectrics as the winner of the award for Excellence in the Field of Environmental Technology Research.
Mungo Park, Chairman of Innovator Capital commented: “Science fiction becomes science fact once again. Congratulations to Superdielectrics for pushing the envelope on supercapacitor performance.”
About Superdielectrics Ltd
Superdielectrics is a material research company that has discovered, filed patents and is commercialising a highly significant scientific breakthrough in supercapacitor electrolyte materials and electrical energy storage. The University of Bristol estimates that these newly discovered materials have dielectric property values which are 1,000-10,000 times greater than conventional electrolyte solutions. This breakthrough offers the prospect of a new energy storage technology that is superior to existing battery technology.
Jim Heathcote, CEO of Superdielectrics said: “It is a great honour to receive this award on behalf of Superdielectrics and the scientific teams from Surrey and Bristol Universities whose diligent work has achieved such an important breakthrough. I believe that the CleanEquity Monaco awards are the equivalent to the Oscars for the environmental and scientific community. They have an important role in encouraging and supporting small companies with big dreams.
I would also like to pay tribute to the vision of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco and Mungo Park for creating this important annual event more than 10 years ago. They identified that further scientific advances are necessary to achieve a clean and sustainable future for mankind and have created a forum for the most creative young companies to showcase their technology to the world.”
