Innovative approaches are needed to address the needs of the 1.3 billion people lacking electricity, while simultaneously transitioning to a decarbonized energy system. For example, Bangladesh and Kenya have developed thriving self-sustaining markets for off grid lighting products. Learning from their experience and adjusting their approaches to local circumstances can help other countries to join the off-grid solar success story.
Therefore, helping people purchase clean energy options and participate in decentralized networks is key to the success of many programs. However lending for off-grid energy products is outside the core business of traditional financial institutions for a variety of reasons among which lack of technical capacity to assess product quality. This training program will consider innovative ideas to address some of the challenges relating to clean energy.
