|| Mini-grids, an increasingly attractive complement to conventional rural electrification, provide electricity to communities that would have to wait years for the arrival of the main grid. Recent innovations have spurred private interest
in mini-grids, but further development will require better regulatory frameworks. Properly structured, light-handed
regulation can lower risks to mini-grid developers through transparent rules on issuing licenses, setting tariffs, and
preparing for the arrival of the country’s main grid.
