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.
