From18 July 2016
Organised bySmart Villages and the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network
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 ) and the
DFID-funded Gender and Energy research programme which is managed by Energia
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.
