In the coming decades, the most rapid growth in population, economic activity, and energy demand is expected to come from developing countries. Meanwhile, much of the growth in energy demand is being met with technologies and practices that pollute the environment and exacerbate climate change. Currently, decisions about expanding electricity access, ensuring reliability, increasing energy efficiency, and promoting clean energy technologies are made without robust information about the potential social and economic impacts of those investments. CEGA affiliates bring expertise to bear in understanding how energy investments and policies can most effectively achieve development goals while minimizing environmental costs. Importantly, we are committed to engaging government and industry partners as active participants throughout the research process in order to increase ownership over research results and ultimately strengthen the link between evidence and policy.
Energy and Economic Growth (EEG), an applied research program funded by the UK government through UK Aid and in partnership with Oxford Policy Management, commissions rigorous research exploring how investments in large-scale energy systems—including energy supply, regulation, efficiency, and clean energy technology—contribute to poverty reduction and economic growth in low-income...
