India: Ground Zero for Scaling Electricity Access

8  Aug 2017 | By William Brent
For good reason, sub-Saharan Africa gets much of the attention when it comes to electricity access. It is home to more than 600 million energy poor spread across nearly 50 countries. But it is likely going to be India--by itself home to roughly 300 million unelectrified--where decentralized renewable energy (DRE) achieves the scale needed to deliver Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7).

It's About Access, Not Electrification

8  Aug 2017 | By Jaideep Mukherji
India currently reports 99.4% electrification, yet there are 304 million people who still lack access to electricity according to the recent draft of the National Energy Policy (NEP) issued by the government’s policy think tank NITI Aayog. How does one resolve this paradox? In most countries, electrification means not only being connected to the grid.

Who We Are

Power for All is a global coalition of 200 private and public organizations campaigning to deliver universal energy access before 2030 through the power of decentralized, renewable electricity.

2 billion people—almost a third of humanity—are without access to reliable energy, and the majority of them live in rural areas with no established method of energy delivery. Compared to traditional approaches, renewable, distributed energy is less expensive, faster to implement, and creates a sustainable pathway to the energy needs of the developing world.
