Energy Poverty PIRE in Southern Africa (EPPSA) Project

The Energy Poverty PIRE in Southern Africa (EPPSA) is a 5-year program funded by the National Science Foundation’s Partnerships in International Research and Education (PIRE) program. We have three broad objectives: 1) Evaluate the environmental and human well-being impacts of real-world energy poverty interventions 2) Investigate the social, demographic, and spatial dimensions of energy poverty and consider the optimal scale of interventions to maximize environmental benefits and human well-being 3) Train over 70 postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate researchers in interdisciplinary collaborative research in low resource settings.
