Report finds more info on solar, mini-grids needed to address energy gap 0

Practical ActionPractical Action has released a report that outlines gaps in the evidence that the UK-based NGO claims is tainting the energy debate in favor of the world’s richer population. More information and policy support for solar and mini-grids is in demand to help close the energy gap.

The United Nations’ goal of affordable energy for all is not being supported by policy, investment and debate: This is a finding of a report written by Lucy Stevens for Practical Action, published yesterday. The report finds that this environment “has not changed significantly in ways that benefit the poor.” In producing Enabling Access for the Poor, the NGO hopes to shift the debate by focusing on the evidence from a poor person’s perspective.
