Sunamp has been named a finalists at the 2017 Ashden Awards. The world’s leading green energy awards recognised our non-toxic Heat Battery technology which overcomes the issue of energy wastage by storing excess energy as heat for later use to warm a building or deliver hot water.

With two and a half times more heat consumed than electricity globally, and with the switch in focus to renewable energy, there is now a large requirement for energy storage.

From a free city-wide public bicycle scheme in China helping combat air pollution, to the large-scale restoration of hydro power plants in East Tajikistan, to innovative smart energy hardware and software solutions in the UK and India, all award winners and finalists were all recognised by Ashden as leaders when it comes to excellence in sustainable energy.

Ashden’s Founder Director Sarah Butler-Sloss said: “All the finalists in the Ashden 2017 Awards are truly paving the way in creating a low carbon future, tackling climate change from every angle by making access to clean energy easier and more affordable. We are proud to call these inspiring organisations part of the Ashden family.”

Since the Ashden Awards were founded in 2001, Ashden has rewarded more than 200 enterprises around the world which so far have collectively improved the lives of some 80 million people, saving more than ten million tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.
