A Year of Great Videos from Ashden

Frank Bozzo

Our latest episode Efficient Living By Design is about a library designed by the innovative British firm Max Fordam that uses 50% lass energy than comparable buildings. More importantly for This Planet, this is the seventh video in our series about winners of the annual Ashden Awards. Each year they produce beautifully made short films that chronicle and showcase sustainable energy trailblazers.

From Ashden's ABOUT page:

The Ashden Awards uncover and reward the most exciting sustainable energy pioneers in the UK and developing world, who are leading the way to a thriving low-carbon future. Our winners don’t just receive prize money – we also give them a global platform to promote their work and access to our elite community of sustainable energy leaders.

With the climate talks wrapping up in Paris, it is the myriad small projects - like those that the Ashden Award celebrates – make up an increasingly important part of our clean energy future. The 11 award winners in 2015 ranged from a micro-hydro project that is bringing electricity to the remote mountains of northwest Pakistan; to Antwerp-based Tapazz, an innovative peer-to-peer car rental network; to renewable solar energy micro-grids in rural Kenya.

What is more, Ashden supports a wide range of talented independent UK film companies, like Rockhopper TV and TV Trust for the Environment, who produce the videos of the award-winners, assuring that these great projects get the lovely videos they deserve.

Although the Ashden Awards are supported by a range of corporate foundations and don’t seem in any danger of disappearing, it seems only right to tell you that you can contribute to Ashden too. But better yet, watch their videos on the Ashden YouTube channel and feel good about the present and the future.
