Platform for Energy Access Knowledge (PEAK) is a revolutionary, interactive information database aimed at progressing universal energy access and ending energy poverty. The platform aggregates the best research —from organizations such as Power Africa, REN21, IRENA, the World Bank, academic institutions, non-governmental agencies and community groups—into compelling data-driven stories for a range of target audiences including policymakers and investors. Through these evidence-based narratives, PEAK closes the knowledge gap surrounding decentralized renewables technologies and further legitimies DRE as the fastest path towards Power for All. 


PEAK curates and organizes existing DRE data, reports on findings and educates access influencers. aliquid ex ea commodi consequatur? Quis autem vel eum iure reprehekk

The Platform for Energy Access Knowledge is a partnership between Power for All and the University of California, Berkeley’s Renewable and Appropriate Energy Laboratory (RAEL), an energy research and international deployment center. 


Setting targets for universal energy access and for DRE adoption is one of the most important things governments can do to accelerate the development of energy access markets and reduce energy poverty. In Africa and Asia, the countries with the highest DRE market growth have adopted specific plans for universal energy access. Check out the policy progress in Kenya, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Bangladesh, and India.
