ESMAP is leading a major Energy Access effort by the World Bank focused on closing financing gaps and accelerating electrification rates through comprehensive grid and off-grid strategies, including some of the largest electrification investment programs, such as in Ethiopia, Kenya, Myanmar, and Nigeria.
ESMAP ensures that these programs include geospatial tools to identify low-cost electrification options through solar home systems, mini grids and grid extension, market intelligence and investment prospectuses, up-to-date business delivery models, and productive uses of electricity to promote economic and human development. Here is how we do it:
- Efficient, Clean Cooking and Heating
- SEforALL Technical Assistance
- Global Facility on Mini Grids
- Lighting Global
- Energy Access for Urban Poor
