Daniel Kammen, Professor of Energy at UC Berkeley, will host an informal discussion on the status of mini-grids. He will provide a short introduction to the topic followed by engaging with the audience on the potential impact they could have for our future energy requirements.

Bio: Daniel Kam­men is a Pro­fes­sor of Energy with appoint­ments in the Energy and Resources Group, The Gold­man School of Pub­lic Pol­icy, and the Depart­ment of Nuclear Engi­neer­ing at the Uni­ver­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, Berke­ley. Kam­men directs the Renew­able and Appro­pri­ate Energy Lab­o­ra­tory (RAEL) and the Trans­porta­tion Sus­tain­abil­ity Research Cen­ter (TSRC).His research pro­grams are on energy sup­ply, trans­mis­sion, smart grid and low-carbon energy sys­tems, life-cycle impacts of trans­porta­tion options includ­ing elec­tri­fied vehi­cles and land-use plan­ning, and on energy for com­mu­nity devel­op­ment in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Refreshments will be available and all are welcome to join the discussion.
