PhD researchers in this program will work alongside leading academics and practitioners from Australia, India and other countries and will contribute to a set of exciting research projects with the ultimate view to eradicate energy poverty.

Globally, over 1.2 billion people are without access to electricity, 3 billion people use inefficient solid fuelled cooking systems and 4 million people die prematurely each year due to household air pollution. Energy allows improved quality of life facilitating social and economic development, however providing access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy to all the world's people (SDG7) by 2030 is a challenge, depending upon cultural, political, institutional, environmental, social, technical, economic and legal factors. Many of these are specific to jurisdictions or communities, so context-specific knowledge is essential. A detailed understanding of these critical factors can inform strategic investment strategies and development decisions.
