Smart Villages: Energy Access as a Catalyst for Development
Presenter: Dr John Holmes and Terry van Gevelt
| The Smart Villages Initiative aims to enable ‘soft path’ approaches to modern energy services through identifying the framework conditions necessary to enable stakeholders to meet the off-grid energy challenge and to ensure that access to modern energy acts as a catalyst for rural development. This paper provides an overview of the Smart Villages Initiative and presents lessons learned and recommendations from our first international workshop held in Arusha, Tanzania in June 2014.
