The Applied Research Programme on Energy and Economic Growth (EEG) produces cutting-edge research on the links between energy and economic growth, working closely with policy makers in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia to build more sustainable, efficient, reliable and equitable energy systems.
Investigating how electricity supplies could be used more productively and energy efficiency improved.
Researching ways to improve the reliability of electricity systems.
Researching ways to utilise natural resources to increase capacity.
Researching the technological and political challenges in connecting people to the grid.
The universal energy access agenda has typically focused attention on the inclusion of vulnerable individuals in society, typically women, children and the elderly. Relatively little focus has been placed on the energy deficit experienced by people with disabilities.
Energy services are essential to improving displaced people’s life-chances, whether through powering clinics, pumping and treating water, enabling clean cooking, lighting public spaces, or facilitating educational and productive activities.
EEG takes part in event dedicated to accelerating the transition between clean energy innovations and impact at scale.
