Policymakers need accurate data in order to make strategic investments decisions for grids, microgrids, and off-grid solar home systems, but those data are often missing.Two critical inputs for planning—who has access to electricity, and the location...
EAP research on using satellite and drone imagery to automatically detect solar PV panels featured in PV Magazine.
In 1935, only 10% of farms in the U.S. were electrified. This was seen as a huge problem – the productivity and quality of life that electricity could bring was bypassing the American farmer. In order to bring light to the countryside, the Rural Electrification...
In developing countries, unreliable energy access presents additional challenges in responses to COVID-19. EAP’s Rob Fetter told Energy Voice that off-grid solutions could be implemented relatively quickly to help address the issue.
The piece addresses the importance of reliable electricity access for monitoring and treatment of infectious diseases, including COVID-19, in sub-Saharan Africa.
Harnessing Data Analytics to Accelerate Energy Access: Reflections from a Duke-RTI Convening on Data for Development
This document presents a vision and summary of how development and scaling of new tools, and application of big data analysis principles, have the potential to transform energy systems planning, policy design and implementation, and investment decisions.
Congratulations to the seven winners of the Nicholas Institute Catalyst Grants! We are delighted that this year’s winners includes EAP’s own Rob Fetter, who will be leading ‘Mapping Solar Photovoltaic Arrays Using Unpiloted Aerial Vehicles.’
