Path to Energy Sovereignty: Clean and Affordable Solutions for Remote Communities


Remote communities around the globe rely on off-grid installations of stand-alone diesel generators to cover their energy needs, which can be costly, harmful to the environment and subject to disruptions. Policymakers seek sustainable solutions for these communities to meet the Sustainable Development Goals regarding clean energy and reduced inequalities. Even with the best intentions, ignoring community perspectives can hamper the clean energy transition and energy accessibility goals of remote communities. Our objective in this research is to identify the optimal generation capacity investment decisions from a remote community’s perspective and investigate how common policy mechanisms interact with these decisions.


I am also planning to dedicate some portion of my talk to give a brief overview of my other ongoing projects to see if there is any interest in collaboration.
