The Galápagos Living Lab for Energy Innovation aims to reduce the emission of CO2 in its energy production by replacing diesel in electricity generation.
Through a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, Universidad San Francisco de Quito and British-Ecuadorian Chamber of Commerce, a ‘Living Lab for Energy Innovation’ is proposed aimed to deliver the objectives of the recently approved Galapagos Plan 2030, and at the same time provide opportunities to recover from the Covid-19 crisis reinforcing existing strategies and opportunities to enhance self-sufficiency, reduce climate crisis impacts and diversify sector dependency. The Lab will empower local communities to adjust to a rapidly changing economic and cultural landscape, creating a resource and energy system that is appropriate and maintainable.

These projects deliver impact by addressing contemporary challenges. They are possible as a result of research, innovation, public and/or private funding. We learn something from each, and integrate our findings into our ongoing approach.
