Launch of the SE4All Energy Access Online Forum, supported by the World Bank Group

The World Bank Group and the Sustainable Energy for All Initiative (SE4All) are joining forces in launching a new online platform aimed at facilitating connections and knowledge sharing between energy access practitioners around the globe.

Connect to innovate is the mantra of the new SE4All Energy Access Online Forum – a joint initiative of the World Bank Group and Sustainable Energy for All. This new collaborative website aims to provide development practitioners around the world with a virtual platform to connect and share solutions that can help solve the energy access challenge at a faster pace.

Community led and simple to use, the online forum is based on peer-to-peer knowledge exchange and allows users within the community to ask questions and share insights. Hundreds of practitioners have already started using the forum to connect and seek guidance from their peers on various issues such as for example innovative consumer financing solutions for off-grid energy services, new business models to scale clean cookstove, as well as energy policy and regulations in specific countries.
