University of Strathclyde (UoS) and our partners have just been awarded £1.3m funding by Scottish Government for the EASE project running 2018 – 2023.  Since 2015 UoS has been working on complementary projects with partners United Purpose, Community Energy Malawi and the University of Malawi WASHTED Centre to advance decentralised energy access in Malawi.

The newly funded EASE project will continue to deliver improved energy access for some of the most vulnerable people in Malawi, building sustainable community energy businesses around micro grids and energy centres, whilst improving the enabling environment for sustainable energy development through training, advocacy and mainstreaming of energy planning by District Energy Officers.
