Event Details
Electrical energy is a key staple in the modern world and it would be impossible to imagine the birth of a technology that nowadays we consider as essential without thinking of machines which need electricity to function. However, not every person on the planet has the possibility of using electricity. This is especially relevant for displaced populations forced to live in refugee camps, where energy is still necessary to power small electrical devices to heat water up, obtain light or communicate.

SRUK, in collaboration with the Cabot Institute and Institute for Advanced Studies from the University of Bristol, has organised a free symposium about Energy access for displaced people on 12th October at Bristol (School of Education. Room 1.20 &1.21. University of Bristol)

Owen Grafham (Chatham House, London), Dr. Mónica García (The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme, Cheltenham ), Alejandra Rojo (Centre for Innovation in Technology for Human Development , UPM, Madrid. Spain) and Dr. Irene Merino (Bristol Bioenergy Centre, UWE, Bristol) will explain their studies providing insight into the energy needs and its management in refugee camps, enviromental sustainability or new affordable and renewable energies to provide basic needs to displaced populations. The audience will also have the chance to debate with the speakers in a roundtable and discuss their own studies in a poster session (with a poster prize), allowing for the sharing of ideas to tackle the problem of energy provision and needs for displaced populations.
