Hyperdrive has won the Energy Innovation Award at the 2019 North East Innovation Awards.

The Energy Innovation award recognises businesses that are positively impacting the environment and sustainability by changing the way we view and use energy.

The award ceremony took place on Thursday 28th November 2019 at St James Park as part of VentureFest North East, the leading showcase event for innovative companies.

Dr Dave Sandells, Technology Director, commented “It’s a great achievement to be recognised for our commitment to clean energy. Our battery technology is designed and developed here in the north east and can be found in applications all over the world. The Innovation Awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate those companies in our region that are pushing boundaries and paving new ways.”

As part of the wider Innovation SuperNetwork programme, the event was delivered by 60 partner organisations and supported by the North East LEP, Northumbrian Water, ENGIE and the North East BIC.
