Working with Government to scale impact
Tuesday 27th October, 08:30 – 09:50: Conference Room – Sheikh Maktoum C
With energy access the foundation for the global development agenda, governments are looking for ways to accelerate access to modern energy services. Despite years of effort to invest in the electric grid expansion, there are more un-electrified people today than there were people alive on the planet when Thomas Edison built the first electric grid. The fast-growing solar lighting and services industry is demonstrating that with a robust enabling environment, commercial private sector solutions can generate big impacts rapidly. What do enabling environments look like, and how can the industry and governments partner to achieve universal energy access?
