Advanced Infrastructure shortlisted for Ashden Award for Energy Innovation

Grace Martin, Head of Marketing, Advanced Infrastructure

Advanced Infrastructure has been shortlisted in the Ashden Awards for climate solutions in the category of Energy Innovation for its work in accelerating the UK's net zero journey through the geospatial planning tool “LAEP+" (Local Area Energy Planner Plus). Supporting local authorities, energy networks, and practitioners to identify and plan viable pathways to decarbonise local areas.

Advanced Infrastructure is amongst 32 shortlisted projects and organisations that are tackling key climate challenges in the Global South and the UK, creating fairer societies as well as lower emissions. 

The organisations range from a scheme bringing clean energy to 2 million people in Nigeria, to work empowering rainforest communities in Indonesia and nature protection and clean energy organisations in England and Wales.

Shortlisted organisations are from Kenya, Ethiopia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zimbabwe, Cameroon, Nigeria, India, England, Wales, Costa Rica, and Peru.

Ashden Head of Awards Dr Stephen Hall said: “This is a breathtaking collection of climate trailblazers. Our 2023 shortlists prove once again that we have the climate innovation we need – funding and investment into this great work must be stepped if we are to meet climate and development goals, such as connecting everyone to clean energy by 2030.

“In every category we’ve seen exciting potential to create stable green jobs and livelihoods.  We now need global leaders to recognise the potential for clean energy and regenerative solutions, to drive fairer and more productive economies.”

Winning organisations, chosen by panels of expert judges, will be revealed this autumn. Winners will benefit from a cash prize and publicity, as well as new connections to investors, funders and policymakers. The annual Ashden Awards were launched in 2001.
