Let capabilities ring: Operationalizing energy justice in Guinea

Let capabilities ring: Operationalizing energy justice in Guinea

This insightful article was written by our colleague Laurent Jodoin, Ph.D, published in the Energy Research & Social Science Journal, on the concept of the Energy Justice Framework (EJF) and how it can be operationalized in developing countries. The proposed approach is based in part on empirical research conducted in Guinea through an analysis of a 2015 access to electricity survey conducted by Econoler among 3,860 Guinean households using the World Bank/ESMAP Multi-Tier Framework (MTF). The work for this analysis was funded by IDRC.

The concept of the EJF goes way beyond that of energy poverty by integrating multi-dimensional ethical and human capability considerations. The author makes a strong argument for the idea that energy access as a topic is “better addressed from a broader ethical perspective and the EJF based inter alia on the capability approach offers an adequate normative framework because it helps conceptualize the real opportunities that the wide diversity of energy services can offer.” As a consequence, an energy justice framework can help policymakers in designing more just and inclusive energy policies.

World ESCO Outlook

World ESCO Outlook

Langlois, P., J. Hansen, S., "World ESCO Outlook," 2012
As country after country around the world embraces the idea of self-funding energy efficiency, an energy performance contracting (EPC) model emerges and then changes to meet local needs. This book captures this rapidly changing landscape and offers valuable insights into this fascinating industry. The authors have brought together the best of in-country experts from nearly 60 countries to share their insights as to what makes EPC successful in their specific environments. In telling their story, they also reveal some exciting new overseas market opportunities and provide the most complete insight available into the ESCO world.

Canadian Energy Efficiency Outlook: A National Effort for Tackling Climate Change

Canadian Energy Efficiency Outlook: A National Effort for Tackling Climate Change

Langlois, P, Gauthier, G., "Canadian Energy Efficiency Outlook A National Effort for Tackling Climate Change", 2019
Energy Efficiency (EE) has been recognized since the early 1970s as the most relevant mechanism to optimize the way we meet our energy needs. The rationale behind this book is to present where the Canadian EE sector stands today to all Canadian stakeholders and those interested around the world. The Canada Energy Efficiency Outlook aims to outline the different environments that support EE development in our highly diversified provinces and territories, as well as at the national level, and consequently allow the reader to better understand the complexities involved. More globally, this book serves as an important reference for all interested parties on how Canada has variably innovated and developed mechanisms to achieve the goal of making this country more energy efficient.
