On March, 15, the German Ministry of the Environment and the BDI (Federation of German Industry) awarded the prestigious IKU prize for innovations in the field of environment and climate. The partnership between INENSUS and PERACOD won the prize in the category “technology transfer”. CEO Dr. Hans-Joachim Preuß and PERACOD’s programme manager Dr. Jörg Baur participated in the ceremony on behalf of GIZ. The prize carries a value of 25.000€, which INENSUS will invest into broadening the scope of its activities.
The German wind energy specialist INENSUS and PERACOD have been collaborating since 2008 in the field of decentralised rural electrification using small wind energy turbines and an innovative business model.
Some weeks prior to the IKU award, we had learned that our PPP is also among the winners of the SEED award for 2010. From the SEED award website: "The SEED Awards for Entrepreneurship in Sustainable Development is an annual awards scheme designed to find the most promising, innovative and locally led start-up social and environmental entrepreneurs in countries with developing and emerging economies."
