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 led by Dr. Federico Caprotti (University of Exeter) and Dr. Jiska de Groot (University of Cape Town), and is a partnership between the University of Exeter, Sustainable Energy Africa (SEA), the Energy Research Centre (ERC) at the University of Cape Town, the Science Policy Research Unit at Sussex University (SPRU), the University of Manchester, and the University of Plymouth. Together we seek to move towards collaborative, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary contributions to South African energy transitions.
