The second international workshop of the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN), titled Transitions to low carbon energy systems: which pathways to energy access for all?, took place at the University of Sussex in Brighton in the UK on the 10th and 11th September 2012.
The event focussed on identifying and discussing priority questions that need to be answered to meet the UN goal of “Sustainable energy for all”. Reflecting on the outcomes and implications of Rio+20, the workshop looked at the extent to which low carbon development can simultaneously address concerns around energy access, poverty reduction, human development and economic growth.
The workshop was international in both its scope and significance and was hosted by the STEPS Centre and SPRU – Science & Technology Policy Research at the University of Sussex, and is supported by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).
The event involved participants from across a wide array of academic communities, government departments, private sector organisations and NGOs, as well as a range of countries.
