The company has been shortlisted for its LeafNut wireless control system for street lighting, which has been rolled out in many local authorities across the UK.

The Orange Innovation Award aims to recognise businesses that have gone above and beyond in their development and implemented cutting edge innovation in terms of products, services or company culture.

As part of the judging process, Harvard Engineering will make a presentation before an independent judging panel in October before the winners are announced at an awards ceremony in November.

John McDonnell, managing director at Harvard Engineering commented: “We are extremely proud that LeafNut, our energy saving street lighting control system, has been shortlisted for the Orange Innovation category. It’s a credit to the whole company.”

In total, over 152 of Britain’s public and private sector businesses have been announced as finalists across all categories in the National Business Awards.
