The application process for the 2018 Ashden Awards is now open

Ashden is seeking entries for its 2018 International Awards, the world’s leading green energy awards. The charity wants to hear from trailblazing sustainable energy enterprises and programmes from developing countries and emerging economies that are increasing access to sustainable energy.

There is a new Sustainable Energy and Health Award recognising organisations making a direct improvement to people’s health or supporting health service provision through use of sustainable energy.  Other Awards will focus on Powering Business, Sustainable Cities and Buildings, Sustainable Transport and Mobility, and Innovation in Finance for delivering sustainable energy.  Ashden also wants to hear from initiatives that are improving energy access in areas where markets for sustainable energy products and services are under-developed and energy access rates are low, including in humanitarian settings.

Entry to the Awards is free, with six international winners receiving an Award of up to £20,000 each at a prestigious ceremony in London on 14 June 2018.  Ashden also provides winners with a wide-ranging package of support, tailor-made to their needs and which could include business mentoring, sales and technical training, introductions to investors and help with communications. Find out more and apply for an Award by clicking here.
