Shell is calling on SMEs with big ideas on reducing carbon emissions to enter Shell Springboard for the chance to win a no strings attached cash award.

In 2015, the programme is celebrating 10years of low-carbon innovation, and for the first time, the Shell Springboard national winner will receive a total award of £150,000 to scale up their business idea. Five further regional winners will each receive £40,000.

Businesses that make it through to the regional and national finals will also benefit from networking opportunities and feedback from an expert panel of judges.

Over the last decade, the programme has awarded approximately £3 million to 80 of the UK's most innovative low-carbon businesses, and another £350,000 is available in 2015.

We're proud of what our alumni have achieved to create both a lower carbon energy future and economic growth. London start-up bio bean was recently awarded a further €500,000 of funding for its coffee waste to biofuel conversion process, while Oxford University spin-out and transatlantic success story Cella Energy is continuing to attract investment and broker eye-catching partnerships with its hydrogen power technology.

Applications are now open until 5pm on Friday 5th of December 2014.
