The Moving Energy Initiative (MEI) is working to achieve access to clean, affordable and reliable energy among displaced populations by:
-Working with humanitarian agencies and donors to change policies and practices based on evidence from practical projects;
-Working with the private sector to design and implement innovative market-based solutions;
-Improving the evidence base through original research and the demonstration of new approaches tried and tested in camps and host communities;
-Cooperating with host governments and national NGOs to improve energy security among both local and refugee communities.
The MEI is a collaboration between Energy 4 Impact, Chatham House, Practical Action, the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).
