Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy, one of the world’s most prestigious green energy honours is a British award, which started in 2001, aim to encourage the greater use of local clean energy and to address climate change and alleviate poverty.
They were three of the winners at this year’s Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy, two Indian and one Pakistani company. Two Indian companies which recycle waste products into sources of power and a Pakistani firm that fits energy-saving devices in homes were on Thursday honoured with major green energy awards.
The Indian firms, Abellon CleanEnergy Ltd. and Husk Power Systems, and Pakistani company, The Aga Khan Planning and Building Service, were among four international winners. The Aga Khan Planning and Building Service was selected for helping families in mountain villages save energy and make their homes warmer through a range of locally-produced devices.
