Yadoo, Annabel and Gormally, Alexandra and Cruickshank, Heather (2011) Low‐carbon off‐grid electrification for rural areas in the United Kingdom: Lessons from the developing world. Energy Policy, 39 (10). 6400‐6407. ISSN 0301-4215Full text not available from this repository.
Low-carbon off-grid electrification for rural areas is becoming increasingly popular in the United Kingdom. However, many developing countries have been electrifying their rural areas in this way for decades. Case study fieldwork in Nepal and findings from United Kingdom based research will be used to examine how developed nations can learn from the experience of developing countries with regard to the institutional environment and delivery approach adopted in renewable energy off-grid rural electrification. A clearer institutional framework and more direct external assistance during project development are advised. External coordinators should also engage the community in a mobilization process a priori to help alleviate internal conflicts of interest that could later impede a project.
