Two of the four Green Oscars in 2008 were awarded to Indian projects shortlisted for their innovative use of solar energy.

Bunker Roy’s Barefoot College, which has been providing lighting using solar panels in over 136 remote Himalayan villages across seven states, won the Ashden Award for community welfare and S.P. Gon Chaudhuri’s West Bengal Renewable Energy Development Agency, which has been supplying grid-quality electricity to Sagar Island in Sunderbans, received the award for enterprise.

These projects prove that no technology can be successful unless the community is taken into confidence. These solar panels are prepared, maintained and repaired entirely by the community.
