A project in India to turn waste food into cooking gas was among the winners of environmental awards announced on Thursday.
Also honored were a stove design from China that uses crop waste, affordable solar power projects in Laos and Tanzania, and a Bangladeshi solar energy boat project.
Each won a prize of 30,000 pounds ($60,000) in the five international categories of the Ashden Awards for Sustainable Energy.
“Our winners show how sustainable energy can improve health, education and livelihoods and at the same time reduce carbon emissions,” said Sarah Butler-Sloss, who headed the judging panel.
“If these technologies were expanded and replicated on a large scale, they would play a significant role in helping us to tackle climate change and poverty. What we need now is the political will to scale up and roll out these solutions.”
