Research and Matchmaking Conference Report

On November 3rd and 4th, 2016, the Applied Research Programme on Energy and Economic Growth (EEG) held an inaugural Research and Matchmaking (R&M) Conference in Washington, DC. It brought together over 100 participants, including top level policymakers from Africa and Asia, renowned researchers from around the globe and other energy practitioners. Participants discussed what is currently known (and not known) about the relationship between energy and economic growth—along with a few ideas about how EEG research, and shared ideas about how the EEG programme can help guide the development of large-scale energy systems that foster
economic growth.
