Improving Energy Access to the Urban Poor in Developing Countries

Prepared by | The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) for the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP)


Although rural energy access is a recognized priority, the issue of energy access for urban poor populations has not been given the requisite focus or priority in research and policy. Nevertheless, there are examples of successful approaches in providing energy access to the poorest segments of society.


The goal of this knowledge product is to document global best practices that can be shared amongst developing countries stakeholders to address issues of energy poverty and access. The case studies in this report represent innovative and diverse efforts, enabled by specific factors that may be replicated under identifiable circumstances.
