State of Electricity Access Report (SEAR)

The State of Electricity Access Report (SEAR) 2017 examines the critical role of energy in achieving the SDGs, and provides a snapshot of the status of electricity access worldwide, based on the recent Global Tracking Framework. It explores how countries can create a conducive environment for a transformative electricity access roll out, how clean energy fits into the picture, and how emerging and innovative service delivery models can accelerate progress. It also delves into topics ranging from electricity planning, human capital, and gender, to climate change, energy efficiency, and results-based financing with the goal of prompting stakeholders to develop solutions to close the electricity access gap.
