Sustainability is really neat, so it’s nice to see that the Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy exist and they recently awarded some top-notch and innovative projects happening in the developing world. The winners receive a cash prize to continue their great work.
Projects ranged from solar-powered home systems and mini-hydropower plants for remote villages, to food waste and dung biogas plants for urban areas.
One of the first-prize winners, the Beijing Shenzhou Daxu Bio-energy Technology Company from China, has developed a new biomass stove that burns agricultural waste and wood instead of coal.
