Ashden Awards Winter Receeption

Last week we held a Winter Reception at the Royal Society of Arts. Jonathon Porritt CBE, who is an Ashden Awards trustee and chairman of the Sustainable Development Commission, spoke at the event.
He gave us his analysis of the energy situation in the UK, referring to the effects of recession and the "new green deal" brought in by President Obama.

As well as Jonathon's presentation, there was plenty of opportunity for networking, with investors, funders, past winners and Ashden Awards Circle members present.
There were also displays of some of our winners' technologies, including scale models such as this sawdust-fuelled stove from KSG:
and this treadle pump from IDE India:
