Energy change lab
The Energy Change Lab works with pioneers and changemakers to build an energy system that is sustainable and people-centred. We do this by developing leaders, incubating prototypes for sector change, building evidence, connecting people and sharing ideas.
Jointly initiated by Hivos and IIED, and working with local partners, the lab started in Tanzania in 2015. In Tanzania, we are focusing on three priority areas: accountability in the energy sector, job creation, and improved coverage of decentralised energy solutions. We work with partners to run learning and leadership programmes for young people, aspiring entrepreneurs and energy professionals. As we grow, we share our approach and results globally.
