CNN reports on two of our winners

CNN's recent report on solar energy bringing power to Africa focussed on two of this year's Ashden award-winners, Rural Energy Foundation and D.light Design. CNN reporter Catriona Davies writes: "In rural communities of Africa - where more than 95 percent of homes have no access to electricity -- solar energy has the power to transform lives." Her report also quotes Willem Nolens, director of Rural Energy Foundation, "Lack of access to energy is a cause of poverty, not just a result of poverty."
