Descriptif
This project is a partnership between the University of Sussex in the UK and the African Technology Policy Studies Network in Kenya. It aims to inform the development of Climate Innovation Centres in various developing countries by analyzing the history of, and actors involved in, the adoption of solar home systems in Kenya. The objective is to improve the ability of policy to facilitate the transfer and uptake of low carbon technologies in developing countries, and to do so in ways that can assist in their economic development. Especially challenging but of critical importance to this economic development, the project aims to identify in ways in which low carbon technologies can which also benefit poor people by improving access to modern energy services. The project brings to bear an innovative theoretical approach which builds on the STEPS Centre’s Pathways Approach to bridge relevant insights from academic literature in the fields of both innovation studies and socio-technical transitions. For more information on the theoretical background to the project see the following STEPS Centre Energy Briefing and associated Working Paper .

Mise en œuvre : African Technology Policy Studies Network (ATPS)

Financement : The project is funded by the Climate and Development Knowledge Network – an initiative funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID)
