"We live in a world where 1.5 billion people lack access to modern forms of electricity and three billion cook on smoky inefficient stoves and outdoor fires while in the industrialised world our dependence on fossil fuels and our inefficient use of energy is threatening energy security, raising the price of energy and damaging the planet. To address these challenges, 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. " [1]
