A PRODUCT previewed in last month's Business Telegraph has gone on to win a first award, before production has even started.
Binbrook-based MyEnergi's Zappi electric vehicle charger has been named Product of the Future at The Energy Show 2017.
Held in Dublin, it was emerald green energy that was the target for the visit to the two-day event.
Winning the award drew even more attention to the charger, which manages consumption to align with micro-generation in the home or low tariffs, as reported.
MyEnergi's business development manager, Jordan Brompton said: "It was an amazing feeling hearing our name read out for 'Product of the Future' in front of such an influential crowd.
"The news of the award really boosted the team back at our Lincolnshire base. It's so nice to have our hard work acknowledged."
Colleague and director Lee Sutton brought the device forward, and a crowd-funding campaign saw more than £10,000 raised, with local actress Sophie Powles helping promote the innovation.
