Renewable energy in low- and middle-income countries


Published 21.11.23

How can policymakers promote renewable energy in low- and middle-income countries?

The price of renewables has fallen much faster than other sources of energy, making it a more accessible option for governments in low- and middle-income countries. In this episode of VoxDevTalks, Mar Reguant and John Van Reenen discuss how renewable power provides a unique opportunity to decarbonise electricity generation, and how policy can speed up the green transition.

This episode is a collaboration with BREAD and IGC, who have designed a virtual PhD-level course which provides a comprehensive review of the economic questions relevant to climate change and economics of the environment.
