The next webinar in our monthly series brings together researchers working on
energy governance issues from a range of projects funded under two different
DFID initiatives. These initiatives are the EPSRC/DFID/DECC funded
Understading Sustainable Energy Solutions (USES) programme whose 13 projects
are networked under the USES Network (http://www.lcedn.com/uses [1]) and the
DFID-funded Gender and Energy research programme which is managed by Energia
(http://www.energia.org/research [2]). 
Issues that will be covered in the webinar include: the roles of local
government and political decentralization in energy governance; the political
economy of energy sector dynamics and decision-making processes; Energy
sector reform and fossil-fuel subsidization and the role of cities and
municipalities in sustainable energy transitions. 

Our webinar series is a little different: each expert will speak for less
than 10 minutes and will focus on their on-the-ground experience using photos
to tell their story.

Cooling is crucial in off-grid villages throughout the developing world:
water, refrigeration for vaccines, cooling for Maasai cheese, and even
spaces, whether for productive uses of energy (cold chains for fish or
agricultural / dairy products) or homes and community spaces. In this
webinar, we will hear from several speakers regarding the challenges and
opportunities for cooling in off-grid villages. What innovative solutions
have they discovered? How can keeping cool improve the lives of people
throughout the developing world, particularly the hottest places? As well,
what about the environmental impacts of cooling - how can we ensure keeping
cool doesn't cause further global warming? Our webinar series is a little
different: each expert will speak for less than 10 minutes and will focus on
their on-the-ground experience using photos to tell their story.

"Failure" - the word usually carries a negative connotation. But for
entrepreneurs, policymakers, and NGOs working to provide energy access to
people in the "last mile", failure can actually provide important lessons. Is
failure an important ingredient to success?

In this webinar, we’ll gather experts who will talk openly about their
experiences with failure from a variety of angles and why failure is actually
an important element in successfully delivering energy access to remote
communities.
