After a few years in the field, I think it is time to start blogging again, with the same investigative spirit as before, providing not only answers but also posing questions while at work on how to improve the access to energy for the more marginal areas of the world.

Questions that I would like to deal with here are: What are effective strategies for rural electrifcation in Africa? How is renewable energy in the developing world linked to climate change? Which technologies are appropriate for rural electrification? What are typical pitfalls of energy access programmes? This blog will aim at addressing these questions with regular intervals.
