Class Notes:
Topic: Rural Electrification and Global Development What are the current challenges facing global electricity access goals? What are emerging solutions? How do current energy access approaches support development goals? Energy access and electrification are often considered critical to achieving other areas of sustainable development, but energy access faces its own challenges, areas of innovation, and exciting opportunities. Together, we will explore electrification and energy access policies, emerging technologies, and renewable energy opportunities in different global contexts. The goal of the class is to create a space where we can deliberate, discuss, and question our own assumptions and values as they relate to our understanding of energy access in a comparative manner. This seminar is based on active class interaction and student leadership. http://classinfo.umn.edu/?eliseh+PA5715+Spring2024
