Mini-Grids in the Global South

This webinar will focus on the African region. In subsequent webinars in this series, we will explore other regions of the Global South

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), India, invites you to an online discussion on providing reliable and affordable energy to households in countries of the Global South.

This webinar is designed as the first in a series of online discussions that will focus on different pathways proposed to deal with the energy access puzzle. These discussions – by drawing on practical experiences and best regulations and exploring the costs and opportunities associated with these approaches – will seek to facilitate constructive engagement with government policies and interventions at the national and state levels.

Do join us.
