In brief

A study of transitions to low carbon and equitable energy systems in South African cities

This project brings together expertise from the UK and South Africa to generate insights into the transformation of urban energy provision. With expertise in local capacity building and research, the project fosters collaborations between researchers, policy makers and practitioners to jointly address issues of climate change, and sustainability, and promote development in South Africa and beyond.

The project is a partnership between Sustainable Energy Africa (SEA), the Energy Research Centre (ERC) at the University of Cape Town, King’s College London, the Science Policy Research Unit at Sussex University (SPRU), University of Manchester, and Plymouth University. Together we seek to move beyond ‘superficial’ research impacts towards collaborative, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary contributions to South African energy transitions.
