SA-TIED researcher Faaiqa Hartley interviewed by Knowable Magazine

January 28, 2020

Economist, and researcher under the work stream on climate change and energy, Faaiqa Hartley was interviewed by Knowable Magazine on her recent SA-TIED working paper Faster than you think: Renewable energy and developing countries.

In her interview, Hartley pointed out,"In many developing countries, not everyone has access to electricity, because the infrastructure required to connect them to the system is not available. Renewable technologies can allow countries to skip the need of having extensive power grids, as energy production can be developed closer to centers of demand and, in the case of solar, can even be placed on people’s roofs."
