20 Nov 11 Aga Khan Planning and Building Service, Pakistan – Ashden Award winner

This video can be downloaded here: Aga Khan Planning and Building Service, Pakistan won an Ashden Award for Sustainable Energy in 2011. To find out more visit the link above, and follow us on: Facebook Twitter Blog: In North Pakistan, winters in the mountains are harsh and natural disasters are part of life. Wide-scale forest destruction causes damage from flooding and disrupts the country’s water supply because the region acts as a watershed. Over 14 years ago, the Aga Khan Planning and Building Service (AKPBS) began a concerted drive to make homes in North Pakistan warmer, and reduce the use of wood. Based on the Aga Khan’s belief that: “A proper home can bridge that terrible gap between poverty and a better future” the programme is doing just that for over 240000 people. Today over 100 ‘resource people’ work in their own villages promoting energy efficient products.

The tank’s green-and-red logo reads in large type ‘Sunbank:” Welcome to a new-old way to heat the water in your business or home, save money and vote for renewable energy, in one fell swoop: the rooftop solar water heater. “That’s the most efficient solar collector in the world,” said Richards, gazing up at his contrivance.

And they’re all over Europe and the Middle East and Latin America. But there’s just kind of coming here now.” Richards hopes to bring solar water not just to West Virginia but to customers nationwide. His timing is good. Lester Brown, founder of the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute, noted in his 2009 book, “Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization” that until recently solar water was a niche market for heating pools
