On 11-12 September, the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN) held its annual conference on the topic of “Equity and Energy Justice” at Durham University, UK. As a follow-up to this conference, we’ll be holding two webinars (September and October 2017) to share highlights from the conference.
This month, we’ll be joined by the conference’s first Keynote Speaker, Dr Rosie Day, who will reflect on the broader theme of energy justice given her extensive experience in this burgeoning field. We’ll also be joined by Dr Shikha Lakhanpal, who spoke in the panel ‘Governance, Power, and Resistance’, and will share examples from India. Lastly, Ms Dipti Vaghela, who spoke on the panel ‘Market Solutions? Entrepreneurialism, Productive Uses, and Equity’ will speak about her experience with community-focused renewable energy entrepreneurs in Myanmar.
