Energy Access Theme

In the Energy Access Theme GNESD centres have assessed the impact of power sector reforms on the poor and proposed policy options and recommendations that would improve access to electricity services by the poor. Each of the nine contributing centres prepared and analysed detailed Case Studies demonstrating the effectiveness of policies that have been implemented in the following areas:
  • Protecting funds for electrification of the poor from being used or misappropriated for other purposes.
  • Explicit focus on the poor in the reform process.
  • Participation of the poor in electrification initiatives.
  • Measures that support low-cost technology options that lower the cost of electricity for the poor.
