Ashden Awards

These awards recognise the environmental, social and economic benefits of outstanding climate solution projects in the UK and the developing world.

The initiative and its related activities aim to persuade policymakers, funders and the wider public to recognise renewable energy as a tool for addressing the urgent global issues of climate change, pollution and energy supply, as well as the social and economic needs of local communities.

This year’s award categories include energy innovation, nature-based solutions, powering futures in clean energy, energising refugees and displaced people, and more. Some categories focus on the UK, and others cover work in low- and middle-income countries.

Winners will receive a prize of £10,000 or £25,000 and a package of supplementary support.

Businesses, NGOs, government organisations, social enterprises and community groups are all eligible. Work must be currently available to clients, customers or beneficiaries.
