In recent years, there has been a growing recognition of the important role energy efficiency can play in addressing humanitarian challenges and improving the lives of vulnerable populations. This has led to increased efforts to promote energy efficiency solutions tailored to humanitarian settings’ specific needs and contexts. In this seminar, we will explore how energy efficiency can improve humanitarian conditions and discuss some of the challenges and opportunities associated with implementing energy efficiency measures in these contexts.


Dr. Hanan M. Albuflasa is the head of the Department of Physics at the University of Bahrain. Dr. Albuflasa has a Ph.D. and an M.Sc in Renewable Energy from the Centre of Renewable Energy System Technologies, CREST, Loughborough University, UK. Dr. Albuflasa is Bahrain’s representative for the GCC Technical Standard Committee on Renewable Energy and Energy Storage Systems, a participating member and country representative of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) for TC 82 and TC 88. She is a senior IEEE member, IEEE SIGHT chair and REGION 8 Power and Energy Society Representative.
