The International Conference on “Micro Perspectives for Decentralized Energy Supply” (MES) was established as an international forum to discuss the micro perspective of the technical, economic, social, and environmental aspects of microenergy systems.

The MES conference brings together leading academics from the social sciences, economics, natural sciences, and engineering, as well as practitioners (e.g. project developers and implementers, entrepreneurs).

Microenergy Systems provide solutions for single households or micro enterprises (e.g. solar home systems, improved cooking stoves, biogas plants), as well as technologies for several households or communities. For a long time, they have been regarded as transitional solutions towards centralized energy supply in developing countries, or as a negligible niche market in developed countries. In recent years, there have been growing expectations that decentralized energy systems will play an important role in shifting energy policy, as well as in contributing to poverty reduction and improved health, education, and overall quality of life. The MES conference will explore the technical, social, and economic factors and context conditions that can enable MES to meet these expectations.
