The winner of last year’s inaugural £40,000 award was Scotrenewables, an Orkney-based tidal power company that developed a free floating, rotar-based tidal current energy converter.

Runner-up Mantle Panel, created a new material for the building trade with high insulation and load-bearing properties.
