Energy Globe Malawi: Winner
SolarAid, once again, won the Energy Globe award for our work in Malawi. In 2017 we won the award for developing the world’s most affordable solar light, the SM100, and for pioneering pay-as-you-go (PAYG) ownership schemes for affordable solar lights in rural Malawi. This is the third time SolarAid has won an Energy Globe award, the first time was in 2012.
In 2018, we beat more more than 2,000 other project submissions from 182 participating countries to scoop the prestigious environmental prize, which distinguishes projects that conserve energy and utilize renewables.
