Energy access and economic growth

Our head of research Dr. Rebekah Shirley talks to BBC Africa about access to reliable electricity as a prerequisite for economic growth and development in sub-Saharan Africa's rural areas

Powering Jobs Census 2019

Unemployment in the countryside of Sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia is worsening, while nearly 1 billion rural, mostly agrarian people still lack electricity. Providing energy access via decentralized renewables to these communities could turn a double challenge into a huge job creation opportunity.

Mini-grids: catalyzing investment with results-based finance (RBF)

Less than 15% of $1.7 billion of investment in off-grid energy between 2010-2018 went to mini-grids. Yet $10-25 billion is needed annually to bring electricity to 450 million people by 2030 via renewable energy mini-grids. Investors believe the missing catalyst to unlock private capital is results-based finance (RBF).

Mini-grids: powering the next green revolution

Our latest video takes a closer look at the potential for decentralized renewables like mini-grids to unlock an explosion of agriculture productivity and jobs in Sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia.
