Max Thabiso Edkins – remembering his great contribution to renewable energy and climate change research
10 March 2019
It was with great sadness that we at the Energy Research Centre learned that our former colleagues, Max Thabiso Edkins, passed away in a fatal plane crash. We remember Max for his passionate and excellent research into renewable energy during his time at ERC from 2009 to 2011. You can find publications by Max published on renewable energy policy, technology and external costs on our web-site (see here). Max contributed to research on climate change mitigation scenarios; continued this work when he moved on to work with the World Bank. Our condolences to his family – this must have been devastating news. Max’s untimely passing is a loss for us at ERC, the country, continent and planet.
