The Impact of Energy Efficiency on Low Resource Environments


In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the important role energy efficiency can play in addressing humanitarian challenges and improving the lives of vulnerable populations. This has led to increased efforts to promote energy efficiency solutions tailored to humanitarian settings’ specific needs and contexts. In this seminar, the speaker explores how energy efficiency can improve humanitarian conditions and discusses some of the challenges and opportunities associated with implementing energy efficiency measures in these contexts.
