Winner of Power-Gen Dragons Den Competition

During the Power-Gen Renewable Energy World Europe Conference 27-29 June, 2017 in Cologne, Germany, Yilkins received the Energy Innovations Award by Leon Pulles, Advisory Board Member of the Power-Gen Europe.

POWER-GEN Europe and Renewable Energy World Europe hosted this comprehensive world-class conference programme designed and devised by the industry for the industry. This premium conference is a great opportunity to network with leading organizations and high level influencers at the most prestigious event in the power generation industry.


At the Energy Innovations Dragon’s Den that was organized on 29th June 2017 at POWER-GEN, leading start-up companies were invited to pitch their ideas to an international audience of energy professionals. Following each pitch, an experienced committee of international power practitioners cross-examined each speaker.

Leon Pulles commented: ‘The proposition of Yilkins really has the potential to provide a huge contribution to the climate challenges that we face. Their highly efficient and competitive drying technology opens up the opportunity to make biomass residue streams available for energy and product applications that were locked until now. Besides, Yilkins has been able to deliver concrete results by their fast development track, from idea to commercial demonstration, in only 2 years’ time. This way, Yilkins is delivering real contribution to CO2 reduction on the short term.’
