From the ground up: Translating Compacts to Implementation

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 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 AssociationCLASPGlobal Off-Grid Lighting AssociationPower 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. By examining the broader value chain of distributed renewable energy solutions—solar home systems, rooftop systems, mini-grids, productive use of energy and workforce training and education the event facilitated partnerships and open conversations about leveraging private sector investments, mitigating risks and market-based approaches that will help energy compacts succeed.
