This is the combined webpage of two PhD projects rethinking the geographies of energy in cities of the Global South:
- Reconfiguring the City: Renewable Energy Practices in Middle Income Nations (by Andres Luque).
- Reconfiguring the African City: Climate Change, Energy Infrastructures and the Urban Poor (by Jonathan Silver).
The webpage has been created to communicate research findings to the general public and to foster the debate around the development of alternative perspectives on energy. One of its main objectives is to enable a long term communication platform with all those involved in the research, including interviewees and other research participants.
Both research projects are hosted by Durham University, in the United Kingdom, as joint initiatives between the Geography Department and the Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy of Durham’s Energy Institute. Jon and Andres are also members of Durham University’s Urban Transitions team, an initiative examining the ways in which cities around the world are responding to climate change and the Urban Worlds Research Cluster at Department of Geography.
