Energy and Environmental Issues in Development

This area of research focuses on the interplay between available forms of energy to support livelihoods and their implications for environmental sustainability and development outcomes in a society.  Researchers explore topical areas that will advance our knowledge of energy efficient technologies and their potential impact in achieving environmental sustainability and social development.  The goal is to chart a research agenda for a better understanding of the nexus between energy, environment, and sustainable development.

A new initiative that was launched at the 2010 MAGEEP Symposium on Global Energy Future is Abundant, Clean and Cost Effective Energy Systems for Sustainability (ACCESS).  The mission is to foster interdisciplinary collaborations in research, education and interventions to overcome energy insecurity.  The mission is to identify and elaborate on the core drivers for energy insecurity and develop and deploy sustainable, clean energy technologies.  Click here for details on ACCESS.
