Webinar: Ending Energy Poverty May 30th 11:30-1:00pm
Event Description

Global electrification reached 85.3% in 2014, however, over 1 billion people still do not have electricity and more than 2.7 billion people are without clean cooking facilities.

What has worked in developing nations to increase access to modern energy services, how can affordable energy deployment be accelerated and how can the social, cultural, geopolitical and educational barriers be overcome?

Join SSF and Arizona State University in a 90 minute webinar with research and policy experts.

As part of the ASU LightWorks leadership team, he coordinates social science, humanities, and policy research on energy transitions, seeking to understand the social dynamics and societal implications of large-scale changes in energy systems.
