Decentralised Renewable and Inclusive Energy Systems in Bolivia (GENERIS)

This project will study the incorporation of decentralised and inclusive renewable energy systems as part of the energy transition in Bolivia. This will involve creating green jobs for micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) within the framework of the Bolivian Government’s Economic and Social Development Plan.

It will engage multidisciplinary stakeholders through testing, training and implementing innovative solutions with researchers in the field. This approach will include a gender component to guarantee the integration of women and young people along the clean energy added value chain.

The project also seeks to inform public policy debates and outcomes on clean energy transition and to provide greater clarity on what is needed to ensure a just energy transition pathway. It will empower stakeholders and build advocacy support by localising and deploying innovative renewable energy cases across Bolivia.
