Ashden promotes universal access to sustainable energy. In the UK we promote local sustainable energy and a shift to a low carbon economy bringing green jobs, energy security, lower fuel bills and reduced fuel poverty. Through the Ashden Awards, we champion some of the world's best green trailblazers then help them accelerate their work through the Ashden UK and International support programmes. We advocate on behalf of our winners to inspire the wider take-up of clean technologies and alternative business models that make them affordable to all.
