(Closed) Apply for an International Ashden Award || Deadline: 18 October, 2011

  • Are you increasing the use of sustainable energy, changing the way people use energy or teaching the next generation to save energy and care for the environment?
  • Do you want to put your local sustainable energy solution in the global spotlight and inspire others?
  • Do you want to help your organisation to grow, to be more influential?
  • Do you want to be part of an exclusive club that connects you to other trail-blazing energy champions?

When it comes to developing cleaner, sustainable energy solutions, some of the most ingenious and practical ideas are coming out of communities in the developing world. And the Ashden Awards recognise them with cash prizes and a substantial package of benefits to help them develop and scale-up.

What we are looking for

We reward established schemes in Africa, Asia (including China), Latin America and the Caribbean that are technically rigorous, have an element of innovation and – most importantly – make a genuine difference to local peoples’ lives, both socially and economically. Many are doing this by boosting local peoples’ income, providing employment or training, improving health, installing lighting for schoolwork and even improving women’s status in their community. At the same time they are saving millions of tonnes of carbon emissions every year and protecting habitats by avoiding deforestation.

Our international winners are using sustainable energy so that it has profound social benefits in a number of ways: they design and market products or services that reduce carbon emissions at the local level, they establish the supply and maintenance infrastructure for sustainable energy technologies, they create a market for them and use financial mechanisms that put them within reach of every household.
