Understanding innovation practices for inclusive and sustainable energy services
Research Project , 2020 – 2025

The project examines innovation practices in the context of developing sustainable and socially inclusive energy services for the public, households and small entreprises in Rwanda and the East African region. Based in critical theory approaches to innovation, technology, development and power relations, we ask who practices innovation and why, and what do these innovation practices lead to with regard to power relations and sustainable energy embeddedness?
