Decentralised electrification and development

Published by the Veolia Institute.

Recent years have seen the development of many initiatives to increase access to electricity in under-served regions. And yet, despite these actions and a growing awareness in the international community of the important part access to electricity can play in driving down poverty. Some 1.2 billion people remain without electricity, which is 17% of the global population. Of these people, 97% live in sub-Saharan Africa or developing Asian countries, where rural electrification rates are 17% and 78% respectively.
