Sustainable Energy Transitions Initiative

Ninth Annual Workshop of the Sustainable Energy Transitions Initiative (SETI)

We are pleased to announce that the Ninth Annual Workshop of the Sustainable Energy Transitions Initiative (SETI) will take place from June 18-19 (2024), virtually via Zoom. As with prior meetings, we are aiming to bring together leading experts working on the theme of sustainable energy transition from a variety of disciplinary perspectives and organizations, but with a strong emphasis on economics and policy. The meeting will likely consist of a set of presentations and comments by speakers and discussants, and/or sessions with practitioners and policymakers working on energy and development issues.

In terms of specific topics, we particularly welcome thought-pieces or synthetic work on 1) the nature and progress of energy transitions in LMICs; 2) the effectiveness of interventions aimed at reducing energy poverty in different contexts; and 3) the progress and potential of climate mitigation and adaptation policies in LMICs.

If you want to participate as a presenter, please check the full call for papers below. Moreover, if you have ideas of policy interaction sessions that could be implemented during the workshop, we kindly ask you to submit it in the link below.

If you have any questions about the meeting, please contact Cristóbal Vásquez (SETI’s Project Coordinator) at

See you in the workshop!
