Appliances & COVID-19 Factsheet: In November, Efficiency for Access will publish a factsheet that draws attention to the various ways appliances can contribute to pandemic relief and recovery.
Twitter Chat: In December, Efficiency for Access will host a Twitter chat on healthcare electrification and off-grid medical devices. This event will give three - five organisations the opportunity to showcase their own programmes or research.
Live Q&A: In March, Efficiency for Access will host a live Q&A with three - four sector experts on how the deployment of off-grid appliances fit into the existing COVID-19 relief effort and bolster long-term community resiliency. Cooling (off-grid cold chain, refrigeration), agriculture (milling equipment, solar water pumps), and communications technologies (mobile devices, computers) will be explored.
White Paper: In April, Efficiency for Access will publish a white paper synthesising data and findings from the 2021 LEIA technology summaries. Our goals are to 1) describe the technologies’ evolution reflecting the most up to date information, and 2) explore challenges and opportunities to scale during and after the pandemic.
