This webinar is an opportunity to dive deep into the new interactive, open-source data platform from World Resources Institute, the Energy Access Explorer (EAE). It’s a powerful tool that visualizes the state of energy access across selected un- and under-served regions. It maps and analyzes credible, publicly available energy supply and demand data to help accelerate efforts to extend affordable, reliable power to all. Off-grid and mini-grid developers, for example, can use the tool to identify gaps in market opportunities, while development finance institutions can pinpoint regions that need additional funding to electrify energy-poor communities. With EAE, energy planners can also visualize regions where greater energy access could drive sustainable development and target new areas for grid and/or off-grid expansion. PCA partners are likely to enjoy seeing all the possible ways different data points can be overlaid to deliver geospatial insights in this user-friendly interface.
