Energy Access

The production and use of energy have far-reaching implications for human health, economic opportunity, and the livability of the planet. With nearly a third of humanity lacking reliable electricity and 3 billion people without clean fuels and technologies for cooking, energy access represents one of the greatest challenges of our time.

Established in 2017, the James E. Rogers Energy Access Project at Duke University External link takes an interdisciplinary approach to developing sustainable, modern energy solutions in emerging economies around the world. The project supports policy-relevant research and education and fosters constructive dialogue among the world's policy makers, entrepreneurs, and scholars to inform key decision-making.
