POLICY

Representing a practitioner’s perspective and advocating for inclusive, holistic and sustainable initiatives at the policy level

Improving energy access for rural and underserved communities is an arduous task requiring supportive Government policies. Capitalizing on the decentralized renewable energy solutions in addressing this energy access on a large scale requires a conducive policy environment. Unfortunately, a number of energy related policies have failed to appreciate ground-level realities and practitioner perspectives. As a result, they have not benefitted end users and have instead become barriers in the way of enterprises providing energy solutions. It is vital for governments to look at more integrated energy and electrification policies to take note of where decentralized solutions can complement the grid. Decentralized solutions can help in addressing the critical energy gaps that exist in the development oriented programmes of ministries such as Health and Family Welfare, Rural Development, Women and Child welfare and Human Resource Development.
