  • Synopsis
    Access to modern energy services remains low or non-existent for approximately 2.8 billion of the world’s population. Energy practitioners are facing the challenge of delivering access to modern energy services where poverty and lack of infrastructure makes it most difficult. Rising awareness about climatic change and the notion of energy security for future generations are also being channelled into the debate. This book provides an overview of existing energy delivery systems, as well as a guide on the key issues integral to the success or failure of energy programmes in middle- and low-income countries. It consider how markets develop, which services are pivotal in supporting the process, and what overarching factors enable change to take place, providing practical guidance on how to replicate and scale up the successful delivery of energy to the very poor.

    ‘Delivering Energy for Development speaks directly to the “bottom up” energy access solutions that are needed in developing countries to get cleaner, more affordable and safer energy services to people. At the heart of this are diverse energy service delivery models that require a new generation of energy entrepreneurs, supportive government policies and an enabling framework including access to consumer financing to be successful. Practical Action has made a major contribution by correctly portraying people in these markets as consumers rather than beneficiaries.’
    Kandeh Yumkella, Special Representative of the UN Secretary General for the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative

    ‘This book gives an excellent overview of the main principles and success factors for overcoming energy poverty, and provides a framework for analysing and improving the delivery of energy services in developing countries. The book will help energy practitioners as well as policy makers to develop a better and more detailed understanding of the barriers that prevent universal access to modern energy services.’
    Dr Carsten Hellpap, Program Director, Energising Development (EnDev), GIZ

    ‘Delivering Energy for Development provides timely and critical information on how to deliver energy to all, especially to the poorest global population. Energy being the enabler of all aspects of sustainable development, the book offers options to address the chronic global challenge of inequity in energy access in developing countries. It is a timely publication as nations embark on implementing the UN General Assembly declaration of 2014 to 2024 as the decade of Sustainable Energy for All.’
    Stephen Gitonga, Policy Adviser on Energy, United Nations Development Programme

    ‘Ensuring access to modern energy for the poor is a central development challenge. This book clearly shows the benefits and limitations of the methods at work to deliver energy access, and points out where the organizations working in this space – governments, finance, entrepreneurs and civil society – can combine their strengths to greater effect.’
    Jiwan Acharya, Senior Climate Change Specialist (Clean Energy), Asian Development Bank
