Invitation Public Panel Discussion
Dear Ladies and
there will be a Public Panel Discussion on "Confronting Climate Change and poverty with decentralized energy supply - Which role can science play in this process?" at TU Berlin, April 7th 2011, 19:30 – 21:30.
About 1.7 Billion people worldwide are without access to electricity. To extend the access to energy services areas with low incomes and weak infrastructure in the North and in the South renewable energies play a crucial role. However, innovative solutions – like microenergy systems – need to be adapted to the special conditions in these areas.
Field researches show, that energy solutions are mostly technology driven and not linked to the needs, the terms of livelihood and capability of people. Hence the panel discussion will elaborate which pressing tangible questions need to be answered and how science can contribute to increase the implementation rate of microenergy systems. Representatives of the international scientific community, the development cooperation and the private sector will also discuss how they can improve cooperation in order to deliver energy services to the poor.
The discussants are
- Nico Peterschmidt, INENSUS
- Mahamadou Diarra, Mali
Folk Center Development Cooperation:
- Sonja Windheuser, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH, GIZ
- Prof. Johann Köppel, Technical University, Berlin
- Prof. Izael Da Silva, Makarere University, Uganda
The Public Panel Discussion will be at the TU Main Building, Strasse des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin. Please register at: conference2011@firstname.lastname@example.org
