e4Dev IAP Course: Racing Toward Energy Access


December 20, 2013

The e4Dev IAP Course Racing Toward Energy Access – Why the Next 2 Billion Users Matter (more than you think) involves a series of lectures, case studies, interactive activities, and the development of an energy access project evaluation strategy to gain a working knowledge of the current state of energy access (and what it means to provide access).  Students will also understand the connection between energy access and poverty alleviation as well as the financing mechanisms and business models for energy projects in the developing world.  The course is led and facilitated by Professor Ignacio Pérez-Arriaga, MIT Energy Initiative Deputy Director Rob Stoner, and a variety of guest speakers.  It takes place from Tuesday, January 7th to Friday, January 10th, 2014 in MIT Room E17-128.  Contact e4Dev-request@mit.edu for more information.
