On 23-26 January 2018, the National University of Lesotho is hosting the Second Africa-EU Renewable Energy Research & Innovation Symposium (RERIS) 2018 in Lesotho.
The symposium will take place on the occasion of the University’s International Science and Technology Innovation Conference and Expo (NULISTICE 2018), and is organised in close collaboration with the RECP, the Finnish University Partnership for International Development (UniPID), the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN), the Pan African University Institute of Water and Energy Sciences (PAUWES), and Microenergy International.
Until September 2017, researchers from Africa and Europe had the chance to submit abstracts; submissions are currently being evaluated by the conference team. The abstracts reflect the focus themes of the conference:
- grid connected renewable energy;
- de-centralised renewable and household energy solutions;
- energy socioeconomics (e.g. policy, economics, legal, regulatory and social issues);
- promotion of energy research, innovation, education and entrepreneurship.
