Energy Insights speaks with Sugandha Srivastav about all things energy poverty and developmental and energy economics.

Sugandha is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and lecturer in the Environmental Economics at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University. Throughout her career she’s focused on designing effective climate policy in low and middle-income countries, along with exploring incentives for clean energy innovation and finance and the political economy of energy transitions.

We talk about energy poverty and access, the developmental implications of energy poverty, the micro and macro costs on countries with populations still reliant on biomass, developmental and energy economics, the gender implications of energy poverty, the just energy transition, the new Just Energy Transition Partnership deals, carbon offsets and the economic diversification of economies and regions still reliant on fossil fuels, and many other topics.
