Energy Data For All

August 2016
January 2017

Energy Data for All was a project at The University of Edinburgh that brought together researchers, students, SMEs and third-sector organisations in Kenya and the UK to explore the value of energy data in different contexts.

The Energy Data for All project explored how data from pay-as-you-go (PAYG) solar energy systems in Kenya and East Africa is collected, managed, understood and shared. It investigated how value is and could be created from the data in different contexts for different beneficiaries and how to engage energy users in designing how energy service provision can better meet their needs and fulfil their aspirations. The project ran from August 2016 to January 2017 and was based around the following key events:

  • Edinburgh Global Goals Jam 2017
  • Participatory Design Workshops
  • Nairobi Energy Data Challenge
