Read: EPEE MSc students Energy, Resources and Development blogs
15 May 2020
Here are the best three blogs written by our Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment MSc students on Energy, Environment and Resources in Developing Countries.
The Economics and Policy of Energy and the Environment (EPEE) MSc students were tasked with writing a blog on a topic related to the Energy, Environment and Resources in Developing Countries Module.
The exercise aimed to provide the students an opportunity to communicate to a non-specialist audience and the best three were published by the UK Energy Resource Centre.
One of the module conveners, Dr Julia Tomei, explained:
“We were really impressed by all of the blogs written by the students. Not only did the blogs touch on a wide range of topics – they discussed everything from as heating demand in China to power shortages in Lebanon and cobalt mining in the Congo – but they were of a really high standard! Here, we publish the three best blogs – congratulations to Vivek, Molly and Sebastian!”
The three best blogs were:
- Hidden truths of ecotourism: Colombian case study by Vivek Parekh.
- Carbon Taxes, Brazil and the Amazon by Sebastian Spiteri.
- Why we need to talk about energy access and gender by Molly Tinker.
