– How to set up inclusive energy systems
in developing countries

Approximately 1.6 billion people
have no access to electricity – and 2.4
billion people still use traditional biomass,
such as firewood and charcoal, for cooking and
heating. An adequate and sustainable supply
of energy is one of the pillars necessary for
economic and social development in developing
countries. Ensuring reliable access to electricity,
particularly for the poor, is a challenge for
governments, businesses and development cooperation.
Creating small-scale energy
generation is one promising approach to service
the poor. But the right technology alone will
not bring power to the people.
Tri Mumpuni and
Mika Turpeinen showed how financial,
technological and regulatory obstacles to electrification
in rural regions in developing countries can
be overcome, how private investments can be
attracted and how a viable and manageable inclusive
energy system can be set up.
