Energy Access Project
Developing solutions to energy policy and market challenges in emerging economies
Nearly 1 billion people lack basic electricity, and billions more lack access to the reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy systems that form the backbone of job creation, growth, and improved social well-being.
The Energy Access Project at Duke focuses on building knowledge and networks to inform key decision-making related to energy poverty. It brings world-class researchers to bear on the highest priority questions of the day and supports policy-makers, project developers, investors, civil society, and impacted communities in driving energy system development and transformation.
