We’ve been shortlisted for the Ashden Award for Energy Innovation

UrbanChain among the nationwide firms and organisations credited with accelerating the UK’s net zero journey

UrbanChain is delighted to reveal that we have been shortlisted for the Ashden Award for Energy Innovation.

The prestigious annual Ashden Awards were launched in 2001 and winning organisations, chosen by panels of expert judges, will be revealed this autumn.

Winners will benefit from a cash prize as well as new connections to investors, funders and policymakers.

Ashden Head of Awards Dr Stephen Hall said: “We’re proud to celebrate a great crop of climate trailblazers – the sort of pioneers that can push the UK towards reaching its net zero goals.

“Two of our UK award categories are supporting new relationships with nature – recognising the need to transform approaches to food and farming, and also the power of nature to inspire diverse communities into climate action. Our awards’ focus on inclusion has never felt more appropriate.”

He added: “The third category tackles energy innovation, with a strong showing from pioneers improving the efficiency of our homes and developing fairer local energy systems. The energy crisis of the past few months – worsening the UK’s already shocking levels of fuel poverty – tells us that innovation in this area is urgently needed.

“We’ve seen exciting potential to create stable green jobs and livelihoods up and down the UK. We now need consistent and ambitious national policies that make space for these solutions to grow and replicate across the country.”

UrbanChain CEO Somayeh Taheri said: “We’re delighted to have been shortlisted alongside so many important organisations across the nation.

“All the projects shortlisted are tackling key climate challenges in the UK and a big thank you goes to the UrbanChain team, our brilliant clients and Ashden.”
