Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy - 2013 Round Open
The Call for Expressions of Interest to the 2013 Ashden Awards has now opened. The aim of the Awards is to promote the widespread use of local, sustainable energy because of the environmental, social and economic benefits which it can provide.
The 2013 Awards are broken down into two areas: International Awards and UK Awards. The International Awards offer a Gold Award of £40,000 and four Awards of £20,000; and the UK Awards offer a Gold Award of £20,000 and three individual prizes of £10,000.
Businesses, not-for-profit groups, schools and public sector organisations with suitable projects can enter the UK Awards. Businesses, NGOs, social enterprises and government organisations working in developing economies (which do not have developed world standards of living), such as Africa, Latin America and southern and eastern Asia are eligible to apply for International Awards.
The Awards operate a two-stage application process.
The deadline for Expressions of Interest to the International Awards is 23 October 2012 and for the UK Awards; 30 October 2012.
