Adam Meekings wins April's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award

Fri, 29 May 2015

Adam Meekings won April’s £5,000 Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award for his business, Penumbra Power.
Penumbra Power is a technology start-up committed to the reduction of emissions from vehicle exhaust gasses through their innovation, currently called ‘Pre-Treatment'. The internal combustion engine is set to be around for a long time and the UK automotive council's most forward looking roadmap up to 2050 still expects continuing IC engine development, particularly in commercial vehicles. As a result, the emissions associated with these engines will be under continuing scrutiny for the foreseeable future. Penumbra Power’s product would be retrofitted to current exhaust systems and would replace part or all of current after-treatment systems used in trucks and vehicles, improving air quality and significantly reducing emissions. 
Commiserations to Andrew Enebe (Energy Donwell), Michael Findlater (Notio Studio), Filippo Massarelli (Helios Solarcover) and Damian Oracki (Showslice UK) who were shortlisted but did not win this time and are encouraged to reapply.
