Energizing Finance: Taking the Pulse - Understanding Energy Access Market Needs in Five High-Impact Countries 2017

Based on nearly 100 in-depth interviews with senior-level officials from enterprises, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and development finance institutions (DFIs) working in energy access—combined with economic and financial data from each country—this study illustrates how enterprises delivering access to electricity and clean cooking are being financed in Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Kenya, Myanmar and Nigeria. These countries represent five highly different energy access markets across Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. They also belong to the 20 high-impact countries whose efforts to increase access to electricity and clean cooking can make the most difference on a global scale (IEA and World Bank, 2015).
