Mind the Gap: Bridging Strategies for Universal Energy Access (PhD ’19)

Since graduating as an electronics engineer in 2004, JP Carvallo has been working, studying, and researching different aspects of the energy field. His current interests relate to varied topics in sustainable development for less industrialized economies, with a geographical focus in Latin America and Asia. He brings together different disciplines – engineering, economics, political science, and sociology – to study long term evolution of high renewable energy penetration electricity grids, alternative energy systems, and rural energy access, among others. His theoretical interests encompass market design, institutional emergence, innovation, and change, technology adoption as a social construction, and theoretical aspects of the policy process.
