Chapter
This chapter explores the roles of institutional settings in renewable energy (RE) development in Sub-Saharan Africa, and the effects of RE development on forest cover changes in the region. The study finds that the slow but persistent growth in RE contribution to total energy bundles can be credited to the general improvements in institutional ref...

Several studies have questioned investors’ adequate consideration of the three pillars of sustainable development in the construction of development projects in the Global South. Other studies have proposed and developed frameworks for fostering their adoption and application in the planning and construction of such projects. However, relatively li...

Based on a study of Kenya’s geothermal-energy development in Baringo-Silali, we explore how and with whom government actors and local communities in rural and peripheral areas interact when planning and implementing large-scale power plants. Starting from a comparison of decentralized and centralized energy systems, we demonstrate that the developm...
Article

Project
To examine how investors negotiate their involvement in Large-scale Infrastructure projects (Geothermal Energy projects) in Africa
Project
As part of the CRC 228 "Future Rural Africa: Future-making and social-ecological transformation" this project explores the impact of geothermal energy development and its infrastructure on pastoral livelihoods in Baringo County, Kenya. Based on case studies in areas in proximity to geothermal energy development, the project aims to assess the risks & opportunities, land-use changes and governance of infrastructure. https://www.crc228.de/projects/project_c02/
