MTI investee OXFORD PV picks up Solar Industry Award for innovation

1 December 2013

Oxford Photovoltaics (Oxford PV) was named the winner of the Solar Award for Excellence: BIPV Innovation at the 2013 Solar UK Industry Awards.

The award was presented to Oxford PV Founder and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Arthur at the Solar UK Conference, held this year at the BRE Innovation Park in Watford on the 7th November 2013.

The Solar UK Awards recognise the success and development along the entire value chain of the industry from the research in the labs to the person who installs it, recognising the vital individuals and companies that enable a company to achieve success in a competitive market.

The award is the third such accolade Oxford PV has received in the last six months in recognition of its new photovoltaic technology, which has the potential to deliver low cost, efficient solar cells that can be readily incorporated into glass building facades.

In June, Oxford PV received the Innovation Award at British Renewable Energy Awards ceremony, and in July was the winner of the Best Early Stage Investment in a Disruptive Technology Business Award at the annual UK Business Angels Association Awards.

Kevin Arthur said: “This award is well-deserved recognition for our growing team at Begbroke Science Park in Oxford, all of whom have helped the company to make huge progress over the last 12 months in the development, testing and commercialisation of our technology.”
