• Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering

    Sustainable energy access in developing countries or indigenous communities. Interdisciplinary projects may include electricity access planning, needs assessment, assessing cost/impact/appropriateness of technologies or new business models, including stand alone or renewable energy microgrids, efficient appliances/equipment, productive applications, energy efficient housing and policy and program design. Current research focus on sustainable energy transition in Pacific Island Countries.

  • Photovoltaics and Renewable Energy Engineering

    Small-scale renewable energy applications in the Pacific, particularly Tanna Island and Vanuatu. Interests include solar photovoltaic or micro-hydro power for lighting, communications, water supply, etc.; solar thermal or geothermal energy for crop drying; and geothermal or solar photovoltaic energy for electric transport.
