Increasing energy access to benefit health and the environment

Millions of families worldwide rely on solid and polluting fuels to meet their basic energy needs - such as cooking, heating, and lighting. This talk will discuss how sociological and physical measurement methods are being used to characterize energy needs, estimate the impacts of energy poverty, and identify mitigation opportunities. Nicholas Lam is a Research Scientist at the Schatz Energy Research Center. His research interests are directed towards improving the welfare and environment of families living in low- and middle-income countries through improvements to the household energy system. Lam has a PhD in Environmental Health Sciences and a MS in Global Health and Development from the University of California, Berkeley.
