Ashden International Awards 2012

Applications are invited for the Ashden International Awards from organizations that showcase how access to local sustainable energy improves people’s lives and cuts greenhouse gas emissions.
The Ashden Awards reward organisations that deliver, or play a key part in delivering, renewable energy and energy efficiency at the local level, and through this bring social, economic and environmental benefits. In 2012 a total of up to six International Awards will be awarded. One Gold Award will have a prizefund of £40,000 and the others will win prize funds of £20,000 each.

An Ashden International Award also brings:

  • Kudos of winning a prestigious Ashden Award.
  • A short, broadcast-quality documentary film of your Award-winning work.
  • Opportunities to present your work to large and influential audiences at the Ashden Awards ceremony and conference.
  • National and international publicity, through the work of our specialist media team.
  • Tailored help from our support team to take your work further: this can include professional mentoring, training, and introductions to grant, carbon and investment financers.
  • Membership of the network of Ashden Award-winners, who are all leading practitioners in local, sustainable energy


  • Businesses, NGOs, social enterprises and government organisations are all eligible.
  • The application can be for a specific programme, or for a product or service that has been proven on the market. This may be the whole work of an organisation, or part of it.
  • The work must be delivered in areas that do not have developed world standards of living.
  • These can rural or urban, and in either Africa, Central and South America, or Asia.

Closing date for international applications is October 18, 2011
