Core projects are driven by specific research themes, aiming to advance best practice or address policy questions that will then be broadly applicable.
The lessons will be synthesised and integrated into capacity development and research uptake activities targeted at multiple different countries.
These projects are defined and implemented by external research providers within the wider EEG research framework.
Initial projects under review include the design of renewable energy auctions in Africa (through the University of Cape Town) and the potential for grid monitoring technologies to improve reliability (through UC Berkeley).
A comparative analysis of economic activities spurred by two different types of electricity distribution
Exploring whether access to tailored micro-finance for electricity is a way to foster adoption at the extensive and the intensive margin.
National energy planning and policy support for the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals
Measuring electricity reliability with GridWatch sensors in West Africa.
Improving the design and implementation of renewable energy auctions in Sub-Saharan Africa
Country programmes explore broad themes, initially highly targeted to one country.
EEG brings together leading academics and policymakers around four priority research areas.
The Research Repository includes all of our publications from all of our projects that we've worked on.
