Energy Access Project
Globally, 1.1 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 focuses on building platforms and networks that can deliver knowledge to help inform key decision-making. It brings world-class researchers to bear on the highest priority questions of the day and works to provide policy-makers, project developers, investors, civil society, and impacted communities with tools and analysis to help drive energy system development and transformation.
This brief provides a snapshot of the relevant demand-stimulating lessons learned in the off-grid space as well as those that have been pursued by governments and utilities in the past.
