UMass Wind Energy Fellows Destenie Nock, and Franklyn Kanyako, along with faculty members Erin  Baker and Leonce Ndikumana, were recently awarded a Worldwide University Network Seed Grant to host stakeholder energy workshops in Ghana in August 2019. The focus of the workshops will be to gather stakeholders from various parts of the energy sector (i.e. energy ministers, utilities companies, local leaders, etc), to discuss opportunities and challenges towards reaching universal energy access. The larger SEA-Africa Team includes researchers from the University of Ghana, Cape town, and Nariobi.  To read more about the project please visit the SEA-Africa teams website athttp://sen-africa.org/.
