About Powering Agriculture

Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development supports the development and deployment of clean energy innovations that increase agriculture productivity and stimulate low carbon economic growth in the agriculture sector of developing countries to help end extreme poverty and extreme hunger.

Ten winning energy innovators will be named in July at Awards Ceremony during first London Climate Action Week.

The longlist for the 2019 Ashden Awards, announced today, highlights some the boldest thinking and biggest breakthroughs in sustainable energy. Our energy experts’ rigorous research during the longlisting process has brought key themes and trends to light.

The list shows how sustainable energy is changing the lives of people around the world, from commuters in Europe to the poorest farmers in rural Africa. Software innovation and smarter business models are playing a key role. Around the world, bicycles – both traditional and electric – are helping people avoid polluting car and van use. In the UK and abroad, innovators are grasping the potential for retrofitting to make existing buildings more energy efficient.

The Ashden Awards were established in 2001 and are globally recognised as a mark of excellence in the field of green energy. This year’s Awards Ceremony takes place in London on July 3, and will be a flagship event at the first London Climate Action Week.
