Frontiers of Research on Low Income Energy

Workshop Focus

With around 2 billion people using biomass as their primary energy source, and 1.6 billion people without access to electricity, there are many unanswered questions on how to best provide energy services to low-income people in developing countries. This workshop will explore three aspects of the challenge of providing energy to low income communities: business models for cookstove implementations, the structure of rural biomass markets, and household energy choices. The event will be an opportunity for experts to share their latest research and for PESD to share its planned research and receive feedback.
