With the help of a grant from Bank of America Merrill Lynch, we're expanding our low-energy sustainable schools programme, which is designed to help schools save money on their fuel bills and reduce their carbon footprint.
At the start of the biggest fuel poverty campaign week in UK history, Ashden today announced the shortlist for a new outstanding achievement award for success in tackling fuel poverty.
Cold Homes Week starts today, a week of action coordinated by the Energy Bill Revolution aimed at piling pressure on the Government to invest in home insulation as the only way to end fuel poverty for good.
Shortlists have been announced for the 2014 Ashden Awards, which uncover and champion the most exciting low-carbon enterprises and programmes in the UK and developing world.
A total of 61 green energy organisations and programmes from 17 countries have been shortlisted across 4 categories of Awards, which are now in their 14th year.
We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Grayling Future Planet to help us provide communications support to Ashden Award winners across the UK.
Grayling will be helping us provide communications advice to Ashden’s UK Alumni Network through a series of workshops covering all aspects of communications and social media. Their PR experts will also be offering us advice and support to help us promote entries to the 2015 Ashden Awards.
Ashden has today signed up to the Energy Bill Revolution alliance, calling for warm homes and lower bills.
The Energy Bill Revolution is the largest fuel poverty alliance in the world, formed of charities, businesses, councils, trade unions, health and environmental groups all calling on the Government to use the money it gets from carbon taxes to make our homes super-energy efficient.
