Mini-grids For Rural Electrification
Ayu Abdullah, Regional Director for Southeast Asia, Energy Action Partners
With the reduced cost of renewable technologies and rising innovation, mini-grids are a growing opportunity in emerging markets, one which is already reducing fuel consumption, lowering emissions and driving energy access. Estimates show that to achieve universal access to electricity by 2030, 40 percent of all installed capacity will have to come from mini grids. Ayu Abdullah is the Regional Director for Southeast Asia at Energy Action Partners, who specializes in leading collaborative efforts to improve access to sustainable energy. She joins us to help us understand mini-grids better, and to discuss the The Minigrid Game, a tool she co-developed to help rural communities collaborate with project developers to design a renewable energy minigrid that serves the needs of their community.
