Energy and Climate Change Division
The Energy and Climate Change Division is part of the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton. It comprises the Sustainable Energy Research Group (SERG) and the Coastal and Climate Research Group. Our work supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with fundamental and applied research across our six research themes.
ECCD are editing a special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073) for Selected Papers from International Conference on Evolving Cities 2021. The issue is calling for papers that cover pertinent research and development in cities, with particular focus on the built environment, ecology and the quality of life of citizens within and around the cities.
This article provides a brief outline on the issue of delivering electricity access and provides some options on how this gap can be addressed through research and development embedded in evidence and exemplar projects.
Professor AbuBakr Bahaj and Professor Patrick James from the Energy and Climate Change Division at the University of Southampton have contributed an article Power to the People: The mini-grid solution to rural electrification for the UN75: Sustainable Engineering in Action book, which marks the 75th anniversary of the United Nations.
