In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the important role energy efficiency can play in addressing humanitarian challenges and improving the lives of vulnerable populations. This has led to increased efforts to promote energy efficiency solutions tailored to humanitarian settings' specific needs and contexts. In this seminar, we will explore how energy efficiency can improve humanitarian conditions and discuss some of the challenges and opportunities associated with implementing energy efficiency measures in these contexts.
