Hannah’s research will look at off-grid energy systems in developing countries, and how communities are engaged with their development and implementation. She is also interested in the wider development impacts of delivering energy access, such as improved livelihoods, education and healthcare. She will be using participatory and ethnographic research methods. Hannah is based in the Energy 2050 group, part of mechanical engineering. Her work will encompass both the technical and social challenges of off-grid energy systems.
