LEDS Global Partnership Case Study: Community engagement as key component of successful mini-grid development Experiences from Nigeria and Sierra Leone

This case study offers an overview of approaches to the design of community engagement programmes and highlights key challenges and success factors. It is a useful resource for other countries interested in developing systems and strategies for embedding community engagement in their rural electrification efforts.

CAREC Energy Strategy 2030: Common Borders. Common Solutions. Common Energy Future.

This new energy strategy for the Central Asia Regional Economic Cooperation (CAREC) program aims to achieve a reliable, sustainable, resilient and reformed energy market by 2030.

It discusses how the 11 CAREC countries can improve regional energy connectivity and implement priority reforms to scale up investments and promote green energy. It also proposes measures to empower women in the energy sector and build knowledge through new institutional partnerships.

Regional Cooperation for Sustainable Energy in Asia and the Pacific

Countries in the Asia-Pacific region face multiple energy-related challenges, which are driving them to transform their energy systems. First, there is a need to increase energy supply by some 60 per cent by 2035 to meet the growing demand associated with the rapid urbanization, industrialization and economic growth taking place. Second, achieving national energy security is required to protect economies from price fluctuations and market instability and to reduce dependence on imported energy.

Low-carbon Transport for Development: Trends and Recommendations for Islamic Development Bank Member Countries

The specific objectives of the assignment were to conduct a desk study and consultations to prepare a long list of appropriate technologies in the value chains, use necessary selection criteria to identify the most relevant technologies through consultations and field visits, conduct indicative financial analysis of potential technologies (twelve), develop reference manuals for entrepreneurs, BFIs and service providers, validate the manuals and findings through workshop and finalize the materials.

Energy Transition Pathways for the 2030 Agenda in Asia and the Pacific: Regional Trends Report on Energy for Sustainable Development 2018

The Asia-Pacific region’s rapid and sustained economic growth, increasing population, and rapid urbanization are driving growth in energy demand. Ensuring that supplies of energy are adequate to meet this growth in ways that are socially, economically and environmentally responsible creates a new set of challenges for policymakers. The transition to 2030 energy pathway, which is aimed at addressing those challenges, has four coherent and interlinked objectives – increased energy supply to meet growing demand, improved energy security, meeting the SDG7 targets and achieving the NDCs.

Advancing Bioelectricity in Latin America and the Caribbean: Proceedings and Outcomes of the First Implementation Year of a Community of Practice of Leading Countries in the Region

The Bioelectricity Community of Practice, run by LEDS LAC and the Energy Working Group of LEDS GP, brings together LAC government leaders in charge of designing and implementing bioelectricity policies and programs. It gives them the opportunity to share tools for gathering and processing bioelectricity data to support decision-making. This report describes the activities of the Community of Practice from its inception in July 2016, and identifies the primary areas for tapping into biomass for electricity generation.
