All Access Electrification Pathways

An analysis of the least cost-incurring electrification pathway for off-and weak-grid consumers in obtaining enhanced energy services.

This research project aimed to validate the hypothesis that by combining affordable, energy-efficient, high-quality appliances with renewable energy systems that are designed for future compatibility and interoperability, we can create new ‘All Access Electrification Pathways.’

These pathways offer off-grid and weak-grid consumers multiple avenues to attain improved energy access. By standardizing critical aspects of the energy service value chain, beginning with cost-effective, top-quality, energy-efficient appliances and equipment, this approach can effectively reduce the public, private, and social costs associated with achieving Sustainable Development Goal 7. Consequently, it facilitates a more efficient conversion of both private and public sector investments into the realization of enhanced, expanded, and sustainable energy access.
