New project: CESET

CESET logo

I am excited to be part of a new 3-year project on Community Energy and the Sustainable Energy Transition in Ethiopia, Malawi and Mozambique (CESET) which explores how communities can support just energy transitions in East Africa. The project will create knowledge on the political economy and landscape of community energy, as well as a Community Energy Lab in Mozambique and a Regional Learning Alliance.

As a Co-Investigator, I will be co-leading a work package that explores the landscape of community energy across the three countries. Through comparative research, our team will generate new knowledge about existing and potential models for delivering community-led energy solutions in diverse contexts of action.

The project is supported by UK Research and Innovation through the Global Challenges Research Fund.
