Steven Hunt from Practical Action will be talking about his latest work looking at Delivery Models for energy access to help overcome the barriers to implementation and sustainability.

He’ll be discussing the framework Practical Action are developing for designing more effective energy access projects by talking through several examples of Practical Action projects which have achieved scale-up. The main examples will draw on experiences with Micro hydro in Peru, Sri Lanka and Nepal sector development, and the development of the improved Anagi stove in Sri Lanka which has sold over 3m units. He’ll describe the various features of the approaches with the use of the framework and highlight what he thinks are some of the key lessons for future project development and design of innovative delivery models to scale up energy access in developing countries.

Steve first got involved with EWB -UK in 2003 when he quit his job as a consulting mechanical engineer to go on an EWB placement working on slum development in India. After a series of EWB -linked projects and jobs, including relief shelter and wind turbine development, he went on to do the Cambridge MPhil for Sustainable Development in 2004. He then worked on the EWB National Executive and co-ordinated the creation of the Professional Network, and in 2008 he was invited to join the EWB -UK Board of Trustees.

For the last four years Steve has been working at the consulting arm of Practical Action (formerly ITDG ) on energy access and development projects around the world.
