Finalists in the 2013 International Ashden Awards are working in developing countries around the world, harnessing business methods to get reliable, clean energy to where it is needed most. A range of products and approaches – from simple solar lanterns to carbon finance instruments – are changing lives while reducing strain on the environment.

For the third in our series of podcasts about the 2013 Ashden Awards, we speak to some of the businesses and programmes that have been selected as finalists in the International category:
