AE4H 2021 Innovation Lab

In keeping with the ‘Innovation Lab’ framework of the Waterloo Institute for Sustainable Energy, participants from the University of Waterloo and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi were selected for an event focused on sustainability topics. The event's goal during a global pandemic is to establish connections between students and institutions, and to encourage students to use their skills and work together to address a sustainability issue impacting both countries.

Over 1 billion people do not have access to clean and affordable energy. This means that medical clinics are often dark at night when crucial medical work has to be done, cooking fuels create indoor air pollution (a larger killer than malaria and AIDS combined), children have difficulty studying after dark, and an incredible amount of time and money is spent collecting meager energy sources such as wood or kerosene.
