Session Abstract (150 words): 

According to a recent UN study approximately 2.1 billion people worldwide have unreliable or zero access to electricity. In a number of communities, access to modern energy services like affordable, cleaner and dependable heating, cooking, and lighting appear decades away. Given this background, the Off-Grid Energy Group at MIT’s D-Lab focuses on providing organizations based in these communities with the resources they need to design and implement programs that increase energy access in the communities they serve. The goal through this session is (1) to demonstrate our modular location agnostic energy needs assessment and then (2) to empower attendees with the tools and skills required to accomplish real time analysis of qualitative and quantitative data thus aiding in appropriate energy project generation.
