Can Market Mechanisms Enable Energy Access for People Living in Extreme Poverty?
Many people in extreme poverty do not have access to electricity. We know the transformational effects that clean affordable energy can have and want people to be able to harness that.
Practical Action with Kuungana Advisory investigated the energy access needs and challenges of people living in extreme poverty. They looked at the potential of different business models and market interventions (market mechanisms) to improve communities energy access.
A series of resources were produced as part of this research.
