ASU professor Clark Miller leads an Energy Poverty Workshop in Islamabad

Ending poverty through energy innovation

Islamabad, July 11, 2018 – The U.S.-Pakistan Center for Advanced Studies in Energy (USPCASE) at Arizona State University (ASU) held a one-day session focusing on energy poverty for students and faculty of NUST and UET Peshawar.  The session was facilitated by Dr. Clark Miller from ASU’s School for the Future of Innovation in Society. This interactive session provided a multi-level framework for approaching the challenge of providing clean energy in ways that significantly reduce poverty and enable progress, that is based on three key ideas: social value of energy, socio-energy systems and enterprises, and energy innovation ecosystems. The participants learned that energy innovation requires coordination across these multiple levels and explored how new energy solutions are deployed, operated, maintained, owned and scaled by various actors.
