The Low Carbon Energy for Development Network Presents
The LCEDN Conference Series
2012 was designated the International Year of Sustainable Energy for All by the United Nations. It was also the first year in the life of the LCEDN. In recognition of this the network held two landmark events over the course of the first year of our existence with the intention of revitalising the discussion of low carbon energy issues within international development debates in the UK. We are now building on the success of those first events as we begin to organise further events over the years to come.
Our Conference Series has the following goals:
To build the UK Low Carbon Energy for Development Network as an innovative conduit and meeting place serving different energy interest groups and disciplinary approaches working towards human development goals;
To enhance North-South understanding within and between the UK energy policy, energy technology and development communities;
To strengthen inter-disciplinary collaboration amongst academic participants and their collaboration with government, international institutions, NGOs and the private sector;
To enrich UK and international policy-making regarding energy and development.
