Global Energy Assessment

We contributed to the overall management and organization of the Global Energy Assessment (GEA) and in particular to Chapter 4, Energy and Health (below).  The GEA involves specialists from a range of scientific and engineering disciplines, industry groups, and policy areas in defining a new global energy policy agenda, that transforms the way society thinks about, uses and delivers energy and to facilitate equitable and sustainable energy services for all, in particular the two billion people who currently lack access to clean, modern energy. GEA is the first ever fully integrated energy assessment that analyzes energy challenges, opportunities and strategies, for developing, industrialized and emerging economies.
