3rd Low Carbon Energy for Development (LCEDN) International Workshop

Wellcome Trust, Central London, NW1 2BE

The workshop will focus on solar energy technologies and biomass/gas, with a very particular focus on collaboration with the private sector.

LCEDN is led by Durham University Energy Institute (DEI), the Midlands Energy Consortium (comprising Loughborough, Birmingham, and Nottingham universities), Sussex University, Imperial College and UKERC (UK Energy Research Centre).

The workshop will focus on solar energy technologies and biomass/gas, with a very particular focus on collaboration with the private sector. Two particularly strong cross-cutting themes will be systemic and governance issues (for instance integrated energy systems approaches including climate change and scale issues; systems for monitoring and evaluating supply chain issues; linkages between UK academics and the overseas SME sector; corruption, governance and DME perspectives) and innovation in its' widest sense (for instance, finance and innovative models of low carbon engagement; the 20:50 calculator and models for decentralization).

We are particularly interested in encouraging speakers/attendees from the private sector, as well as colleagues who have experience of collaboration with the private sector in energy access projects. We remain however strong supporters of the ecumenical principle and all interested parties in these topics are urged to get in touch; we are very anxious to continue the strong influence of the post-graduate community and the NGO/activist sector.

There will be some funding available for invited speakers and there will also be some help available for post-graduates who would be interested in presenting and helping to organize the events. As soon as a specific registration site is set up these details will be made available on the LCEDN site (www.lcedn.com), however in the meantime if there are specific enquiries please contact Dr Jon Cloke directly (j.m.p.cloke@lboro.ac.uk) or email the workshop organizer, Dr Jeremy Woods (jeremy.woods@imperial.ac.uk).

If you are a PG/PhD Researcher and interested in participating, particularly in helping with the organization of this event, please contact j.m.p.cloke@lboro.ac.uk.
