We are very pleased to inform you: The conference programme with 73 lectures, 44 poster presentations and experts round tables is online. The speakers come from 32 countries and 5 continents - this gives a comprehensive overview of how people in the individual countries work on energy access and what solutions already exist. There will be plenty networking possibilities: at the end of the first conference evening a welcome reception will take place under the roof of a Bedouin tent. This is where the trade and poster exhibition and all breaks will take place, too. The 'Innovation Lab - Energy Access in A Crucible' will be hosted by Professor Jatin Nathwani of the ‘Affordable Energy 4 Humanity(AE4H)’ consortium.Wednesday, September 15, 2021; 9.00 – 12.30 hrsThe goal of the ‘Innovation Lab’ is to develop and stress test a specific set of solutions for rapid implementation in the context of energy access in a disadvantaged community. We will rely on the diverse, but, deep expertise that each participant brings to the lab. It is a dynamic learning platform that relies on a multi-disciplinary approach to provision of energy services for the very poor.SIDE EVENT: What Can We Do to Further Stimulate Demand and Productive Uses of Electricity Generated by Mini-Grids?Session organized by ESMAP – World BankSeptember17, 2021, 14:15 – 16:15 hrsDuring this session the World Bank team plans to report out on some of the existing and planned initiatives within its lending operations that target demand-site stimulation to ensure sufficient and growing demand for electricity produced by mini grids.
