Together with its partners Energising Development (EnDev) and Practical Action, the EUEI PDF has set out to collect a systematic overview of national approaches to electrification. The project is important, since despite a long history of electrification globally and a variety of technologies, policy approaches and market development instruments, a comprehensive compilation has so far been missing.
The project’s output is a tool which through a systematic analysis, review and appraisal of existing national electrification approaches and their characteristics provides high-level information on national electrification approaches in a systemised manner.
The tool aims to enable policy makers and programme designers to assess different options and decide on an optimal design of a national electrification strategy for their country. It serves as a first step on the way to creating a more detailed and in-depth guidance on the design and implementation of national approaches to electrification.
The tool is open access and was launched at the African Association of Rural Electrification Agencies (CLUB-ER) General Assembly in Lusaka in September 2017.
