Energy geography in East Africa: spatial dimensions of renewable energy transitions and sociotechnical change

The project is led by PhD student Sylvère Hategekimana from University of Rwanda and Chalmers research School Energy, Environment and Systems. It aims to understand the role of spatial dimensions of energy transition for rural transformation processes in the East Africa. Placed in the field of Energy Geography, the project contributes conceptually to analyses of spatial patterns of energy transitions and makes empirical contributions to deeper knowledge regarding trends in development of resources, flows of finance and knowledge, territorialities, actor networks and power dynamics as well as their effects on rural transformation in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Tanzania.
