HEED

The Humanitarian Engineering and Energy for Displacement (HEED) project aims are to understand the energy needs of forcibly displaced people to increase access to safe, sustainable and affordable energy services by asking:

  • How do refugees and IDPs use energy and what are their energy needs and aspirations?
  • In what way do renewable energy systems have the potential to deliver improved energy services that meet displaced populations’ energy needs for cooking, lighting and power?
  • Can alternative energy models, using intelligent supply and demand systems, be imported to displacement contexts to improve energy efficiency, social cohesion and economic growth?

Our Partners

The HEED project, is led by an interdisciplinary team based at Coventry University, in partnership with the international development charity, Practical Action, and Scene Connect, a social enterprise strengthening communities through the development of ICT products
