This report is compiled and published as an important tool to help track and measure progress toward increasing access to and adoption of cleaner, more efficient cookstoves and fuels (GLOBAL ALLIANCE FOR CLEAN COOKSTOVES, 2016).
This toolkit’s principal aim is to be a key reference document for the development of sustainable business models and operational off-grid projects in South Africa (Carbon Trust and CSIR, 2017).
This report is the first volume of a three-part guide for re-writing how the world needs to think about, and act on, energy service delivery if we are to eradicate energy poverty by 2030 in line with global goals. This report focuses on robust energy planning and policymaking for universal access (Practical Action, 2016).
The State of Electricity Access Report examines the critical role of energy toward the achievement of the SDGs, provides a snapshot of the status of electricity access, based on the recent Global Tracking Framework Data (IEA and World Bank, 2017) and 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 on meeting the goals (World Bank and ESMAP,2017).
This report explores the technological opportunities for addressing energy poverty, as well as the policy challenges involved in promoting and deploying these technologies (Morrissey, 2017).
This report provides a retrospective overview on AFREA. Regional programs that were supported include: Lighting Africa, the Biomass Energy Initiative for Africa (BEIA), Africa Clean Cooking Energy Solutions (ACCES), the Gender and Energy Program, and the African Electrification Initiative (AEI).
Summaries of best practice case studies in four countries: India, Bangladesh, Columbia and Brazil. Covers electrification, biogas, LPG and efficient cookstoves (ESMAP).
The main objective of the survey is to collect data at household and community level, which will be used to establish useful information regarding state of electricity access in the country. The data will also be used to monitor, evaluate progress and impact of rural electrification (grid and off-grid) efforts in the country (REA and TANESCO, 2017).
This project explores the current experiences and challenges of the electrification programme in South Africa (Tait, 2015).
This study analyzes household expenditure behavior at the quintile level, with a focus on energy expenditures.
The Joe Slovo informal settlement upgrade in Cape Town was undertaken with innovative planning and sustainable energy approaches (2014)
This report is based on the household energy survey conducted in Namuwongo in in Uganda focused on energy issues and better understanding the particular and unique character of the energyscape in the neighbourhood (Silver, et al., 2015).
This paper gives an overview of some key issues with the current electrification programme with respect to informal settlements, and to generate some practical recommendations for the City of Cape Town (Tait, 2017).
IMPACT, Issue 09, September 2015 carries this article on a community approach to bring safe, legal electric power to Kenya's urban poor.
This report presents a study conducted by the Stockholm Environment Institute to address this knowledge gap by empirically assessing the role of socio-economic attributes and product-specific attributes as determinants of cooking stove choice at the household level.
