Project: Kosovo Renewable Energy Strategy
Kosovo, one of the world’s youngest countries, burns dirty lignite coal for electricity only a few miles from the capital city. These power plants are among the three dirtiest in Europe, increasing Kosovo’s emissions while endangering the health of its citizens.
We developed and modeled a diversified portfolio of micro-hydro, wind, solar, and geothermal renewables as an alternative to a proposed new coal plant.
Working with a consortium of local organizations and international funders, we developed a feasible renewables strategy, served as policy and expert witness, and conducted workshops in energy modeling software with local students and organizations, building local knowledge and empowerment.

We’ve heard about Pacific Islanders imminently displaced by rising seas, but limited news reports and even less research emerges from Latin America and the Caribbean regarding the impacts of climate change.
How can we use existing data to understand the vulnerability of the Baja peninsula to predicted sea level rise? Collaboration with local and international non-profits, academic institutions, governments, and local individuals was the key.
As Africa’s energy needs grow, countries look to develop wind, solar, and geothermal resources to build a thriving regional energy market. To promote energy access and lower energy poverty, we calculated the levelized cost of energy…
New stories of climate change impacts and local adaptations emerge daily, both in local news and academic publications. Yet the local information and academic research rarely inform each other.
In tropical forests, local governments and organizations struggle to identify remaining intact forest. Satellite-based forest monitoring can help.
