Who We Are

is the educational component of the Program for International Energy Technologies at the University of California, Davis.
Energy issues in developing countries are multi-layered and complex, requiring innovative and holistic solutions. D-Lab assembles motivated graduate and undergraduate student teams who are mentored by UC Davis faculty from business, engineering and the social sciences. These multidisciplinary teams work closely with local partners to research, design, develop and disseminate low-cost, efficient and renewably-based energy technologies in sub-Saharan Africa, Central America, and Bangladesh. Each project is evaluated through the four lenses of sustainability: environmental, financial, technical and social.
Our program focuses on the following areas:
  • Off-grid lighting and micro-power
  • Agriculture, including pumping, irrigation and post-harvest
  • Renewable energy, including solar, biogas and wind
  • Domestic electricity use and energy efficiency
