Launch of the 2019 Ashden Awards to Promote Sustainable Energy
Awards recognising renewable energy projects in the UK and the developing world, promoting the widespread use of local, sustainable energy, because of the environmental, social and economic benefits which it can provide.
The aim of the Ashden Awards is to promote the widespread use of local, sustainable energy, because of the environmental, social and economic benefits this provides. The Awards reward outstanding and innovative renewable energy projects in developing countries and in the UK, with funding for future developments.
Through the scheme and related activities, these awards aim to persuade policymakers, funders and the wider public to recognise renewable energy efficiency as a crucial tool for addressing the urgent global issues of climate change, pollution and energy supply, as well as the social and economic needs of local communities across the globe.
Ashden rewards innovative enterprises and programmes that deliver, or play a key part in enabling the delivery of, renewable energy and energy efficiency at the local level, and through this bring social, economic and environmental benefits.
