Giving Compass’ Take:
• Global Citizen reports on the Ashden Awards, which gives prizes to NGOs, businesses and other groups who develop clean energy solutions.
• In 2018, off-the-grid solar energy project in Nigeria, a shuttle service app in India that reduced carbon emissions and other innovations from around the world were in the spotlight. What can other entrepreneurs learn from these winners?
Every year, the London-based charity Ashden recognizes businesses, non-governmental organizations, and government initiatives for their groundbreaking work in the development of renewable energy solutions.
This year, six international organizations and businesses received Ashden Awards for their innovative programs, products, and services tackling the world’s sustainable energy problem.
The Ashden Awards were created by Sarah Butler-Sloss, who established the Ashden organization out of frustration with the lack of progress in clean energy after seeing its potential in off-grid African communities.
This year’s winners are working toward making the world more sustainable by providing off-the-grid solar energy, making travel more efficient, reducing emissions, and much more. Along with the honor of the prize, winners from around the world received £20,000 ($26,637), a global platform on which to spotlight their work, and a network of support from Ashden.
Six winners were announced last week, including organizations from the United States, India, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, and Nigeria. The awards were held Thursday in London at the Royal Geographical Society.
