Updated: Aug 24, 2021

A Special Issue of Energies journal (Impact Factor: 3.004) entitled “Clean Energy Innovations: Challenges and Strategies for Low and Middle Income Countries” has been released which features over a dozen articles highlighting different aspects of recent MECS programme research.


Guest edited by Prof. Ed Brown (Loughborough University) and Dr. Simon Batchelor (Loughborough University / Gamos Ltd.), the SI invites submissions relating to clean energy innovations which explore questions such as ‘How can we leverage the gains to reach Sustainable Development Goal 7 so that it is inclusive of the cooking needs?’ and ‘After the COVID-19 pandemic, governments are talking about building back our society in a better way. They are talking about more green energy. What might this look like for low- and middle-income countries? How will transmission and distribution be made available for the hard-to-reach places?’.


To date, 18 papers have been published in the Special Issue, with topics diverse ranging from the complexities of fuel stacking and cooking transitions in Cambodia, Myanmar and Zambia, the challenges and opportunities associated with eCooking (cooking with electricity) from a consumer behaviour perspective, to modelling the costs and benefits of modern energy cooking services.
