EASA 2020 EAN network meeting, July 20th, 2020

Please join our network meeting at the EASA virtual conference. The EAN Network meeting is scheduled for Monday July 20th, from 09:00-11:00 WEST/ Lisbon summer time (GMT+1). The meeting will take place on the Shindig platform, and will be accessible to all who have the link, i.e. you don’t have to be registered for the conference in order to participate.

During the meeting we need to discuss:

1)     Network convenor: As we, Simone and Nathalie, are both resigning, we need to find new network convenor. Being a co-convenor is both rewarding and full of potential. Quite flexible and adaptable in scope and content, the tasks include, in its broadest understanding, the coordination of EAN-related events and activities, be it online and offline.

 We are also seeking nominations for  a secretary/social media coordinator, responsible for managing EAN’s social media network.

 If you have any questions about the role, you are welcome to contact the convenors. If you have any further suggestions for additional posts or would like to nominate someone, please contact us or post a discussion to the list. 

2)     The decision regarding our next EAN Workshop 2021 (where, when, and on which topic?) To have an idea of what a Workshop can be like, you can look at the previous one we convened in Lyon < https://etechfutures.sciencesconf.org/> on “Energy and technologies futures”. We encourage you to start making suggestions for our next Workshop, in terms of where, when, and on which topic it could be.

Publication on cooking patterns and energy transfer programmes in Peru

Sharing with you a new qualitative research exploring cooking patterns, attitudes towards energy transfer programmes and factors influencing liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) use in the rural Andean Peru recently published in the journal Energy for Sustainable Development. The study findings underline the importance of taking into account beneficiaries’ perspectives when assessing LPG interventions to facilitate sustained LPG transitions and improve monitoring mechanism of LPG interventions to make them more effective and accessible. Hence, the study can especially be interesting for those researchers focused on the relations between sustainable clean energy transitions, cooking technology use and energy policy development in low- and middle-income countries.
