The LCEDN team and numerous collaborative partner organisations, government representatives and researchers from the Global South and throughout Europe will be participating in the Understanding Sustainable Energy Solutions (USES) network workshop in Nakuru, Kenya, from 7-9 December 2017. The workshop provides a timely opportunity to disseminate, review and discuss outputs and future research directions of the 13 projects comprising the USES network, a major UK government research initiative which aims to further understanding of sustainable energy solutions to poverty-related and low carbon issues in the Global South.
