geo presented with Queen’s Award 

geo was presented with a 2017 Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation by Her Majesty The Queen at a reception held at Buckingham Palace. 

The Award was given to Patrick Caiger-Smith, CEO at geo in recognition of the technical and business achievements of the Cambridge-based company, and the progress it has made in introducing solutions to help consumers control their home energy usage. Patrick was accompanied by Mark Penhaligan, Head of Programme Management, in recognition of the contribution of the work done by the team at geo.

“It was an honour to be formally presented with the prestigious Queen’s Award today, and I was delighted to receive it on behalf of the whole company,” said Patrick Caiger-Smith after the ceremony. “Our talented team has designed a range of products that are helping to lower costs and energy usage in the home, but the award was specifically for the first of these solutions, the Solo in-home energy monitor. It is recognition for years of hard work, commitment and talent and we are very proud.”

geo was selected for the Queen’s Award because it could demonstrate that the innovation behind the Solo product had been instrumental in its own business development and in the design of other new products. It also provides a well-engineered solution at an acceptable price for geo’s energy retail customers and consumers, and has played a role in encouraging the Department of Energy and Climate Change to support in-home displays in the smart metering programme.

Thegeoteam believes that the technology solutions it designs and develops are a means to a very important end – engaging consumers so that they can bring about a real, tangible change in energy usage that has a positive, long-term impact on climate change.
