The Plat­form for Energy Access Knowl­edge (PEAK)  is an inter­ac­tive infor­ma­tion exchange plat­form designed to help aggre­gate and repack­age the best research and infor­ma­tion on energy access into com­pelling data-riven sto­ries for a range of tar­get audi­ences to ensure max­i­mum vis­i­bil­ity, usabil­ity and dis­cov­er­abil­ity of that infor­ma­tion by indi­vid­u­als, orga­ni­za­tions and com­mu­ni­ties work­ing to make energy ser­vices acces­si­ble to all.


Objectives 

PEAK curates and systematically organizes existing DRE data and reports on findings in this data to educate key energy access influencers.

Research

Inventory and synthesis of key existing DRE information  

report

Easy-to-use and ready-to-share content  

educate 

Peer-to-peer knowledge sharing and communication of findings


Partnership

PEAK is a project part­ner­ship between Power for All and the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL). RAEL is a unique research, development and project implementation facility based at the University of California, Berkeley. RAEL focuses on the design and analysis of renewable and appropriate energy systems to support low carbon policy, planning and project development. The prod­ucts of this part­ner­ship between research laboratory and campaign will pro­vide and communicate crit­i­cal evi­dence needed to sup­port wide­spread adop­tion of dis­trib­uted technologies.

Resources

Beyond being a portal for information access, PEAK will help synthesize and transform these large, growing bodies of data into digestible, sharable and useable knowledge. By transforming dense energy access reports and datasets into elegant, searchable and categorized insights that are easy to disseminate, PEAK enables countless benefits to the environment and climate, to increased development finance and to social impacts.
