Product of the Show Awards
The SEAI Energy Show Product of the Show Awards have championed innovative product developments, especially those incorporating smart energy solutions, for many years. Considerable investment in R&D, coupled with rapidly-changing technology, have seen a wave of pioneering products and systems featured at the Show where many manufacturers now choose to introduce their latest innovations. Apart from the prestige of winning such a highly-regarded award, there are very tangible commercial benefits to successful companies that enter this competition.
The Awards are dynamic and ever-changing, reflecting industry developments, the growing exhibitor base, and the many innovative products and technologies coming to the market. Entries to the five categories are subjected to rigorous assessment by a panel of highly-qualified and experienced professionals drawn from building engineering, architecture, facilities management and contracting.
