Abstract / Description of output

This research brief outlines key questions and opportunities in the study and use of energy data in the Global South. Drawing from new research on energy data in Kenya, the research brief outlines how new approaches to collecting, curating, sharing and communicating data can play a central role in supporting holistic development centred around access to sustainable energy. The brief suggests how these approaches can help to ensure that the social and economic value created from energy data directly benefits energy users and is developed within a governance framework that pro-actively addresses privacy concerns as well as equitable access.
