From the ground up: Translating Compacts to Implementation
June 23, 2021 Private sector plays a vital role in supporting the energy access ecosystem, including governments, national utilities, and the communities themselves. In the spirit of supporting the UN High Level Dialogue on Energy and the call to action to accelerate the end of energy poverty by 2030, Power for All hosted a side event on incorporating distributed renewable energy in national energy sector plans.
Featuring experts from key sector leadership organizations, African Minigrid Developer’s Association, CLASP, Global Off-Grid Lighting Association, Power for All and Shortlist, the dialogue focused both on the key technologies that can help countries achieve compact goals, as well as key aspects critical for sector success, including policy, finance and market activation.

Data for Energy Access: Power for All's Platform for Energy Access Knowledge (PEAK)
In 2016, Power for All created the Platform for Energy Access Knowledge (PEAK), an interactive knowledge platform to help bridge a gap – both to provide data needed by the Decentralized renewable energy (DRE) sector, and to help make most effective use of the information which already exists. PEAK addresses the gap in information availability and use by supporting the visibility, discoverability and usability of critical knowledge for individuals, organizations and communities working to make energy accessible to all. The PEAK technology integrates a select portfolio of open access applications that together facilitate the ability to process and synthesize relevant publicly available reports and data to make sure important information gets to a broader audience.
Why is PEAK important?
The platform offers you a specialized library of documents and a very sector search function that helps practitioners to find documents much easier which allows you to share and download them for future use. PEAK also provides instant visualization that can be saved, downloaded and shared on social media platforms so that you can engage with your audience on a real time basis. It also offers users an opportunity to work collaboratively by building a personalized library and sharing data across the globe.
