Millions of households in the developing world still lack access to safe and reliable energy - and pay high prices for poor quality substitutes. Addressing their needs poses a major challenge for developing country governments and for all other players in the energy sector - private firms, financiers, regulators, non-governmental organizations and multi-lateral and donor agencies. This report serves as a resource in this effort, bringing together survey papers and case studies that reflect the views and experience of authors from wide-ranging backgrounds. It focuses on these broad themes: understanding the challenge of expanding access to energy for low-income households and communities in developing countries and facilitating tecnological and commercial innovations in serving the poor, through market structure and regulatory reform.
