Energy Access Models

Customizing delivery models to cater to the social, geographical, political and economical context of individuals, households, institutes and communities.

Access to long-term sustainable basic energy access for very poor, vulnerable and remote households continues to be a challenge in communities across different geographies. Most of these communities resort to using kerosene or dirty fuel which leads to- overall poor quality of life resulting in long term health consequences; lost opportunities to increase incomes and unsafe environment, especially for children to pursue good quality education.

The above-mentioned lack of energy is directly linked to poor access to affordable long-term finance. Unable to build long-term assets that is critical for them to propel out of poverty permanently, instead the poor are caught up in a vicious cycle of poverty because of expensive local debt (via local money lenders). The solutions under this category, look at models that make sustainable energy solutions accessible to vulnerable tribal communities.
