Hugo Tilmouth Wins June's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award!

Tue, 01 August 2017

Hugo Tilmouth won June’s Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Innovate Energy.
Innovate Energy is the business behind ChargedUp, an external phone battery rental service powered by green energy. ChargedUp works in a similar fashion to the Boris Bike network in that users can take a charger from one station and return it to any other station in the network. It is estimated that 17.4 GWh is used to power mobile phones in London each year, which is the equivalent of providing energy to over 750 households. The ChargedUp system will provide clean, renewable energy to its service users by offsetting their energy through a green supplier. 
Commiserations to Javana Boothe (The Odd Lot), Julian Melchiorri (Arborea), Sam Patchitt (YellowLabel Technology) and Ehab Sayed (Biohm) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
