Energy Engagement Speaker Series

October 27th, 2014

EES Logo

Practical Action, the World Resources Institute, and the United Nations Foundation are pleased to launch our first in a series of discussions on bringing energy access to the rest of the world. This series will focus on bringing together both policy and practice actors who focus on mini-grid, off-grid, household energy, integrated resource planning, and our other established areas of expertise. We expect this will be a great environment for a comprehensive look at different approaches to meeting energy challenges.

Our first topic, Bringing Policy and Practice together, will focus on several issues. How does energy access for all play out in policy and practice, and how can we work together to address some of these issues? How can actors such as the private sector and civil society play innovative roles to change the conversation about how energy is generated and delivered?

Confirmed Panelists

Ms. Allison Archambault, EarthSpark International

Mr. Jem Porcaro, United Nations Foundation

Dr. Ryan Shelby, USAID

Ms. Davida Wood, WRI

We will take a salon style approach, where distinguished panelists are featured, but the audience size is limited in order to encourage open and active audience discussion. The first 5-15 minutes focus on the invited panelists and their expertise, but audience members are invited ask questions and provide their own insights throughout. All attendees should come expecting to participate! The goal is to get feedback from a variety of actors from different sectors. Practical Action will moderate to ensure that the discussion is inclusive, stays on topic, and finishes on time.

    It would be great to be able to participate even if abroad. If part of the objective is to have a solon style approach with a small audience, it would still be nice to have some way for non audience members to ask questions to the panel.
