This report finds that successful partnerships actively promote community empowerment through engagement of community members in leading to a higher level of ownership of community based energy projects. It aims to provide examples of practical experiences and good practices, to demonstrate that public-private renewable energy partnerships can play an effective role for improving energy access to the rural poor and help to create the inclusive, resilient, and sustainable future we want.



Energy access

It is important to note that there are around 400 million people that rely on coal, which is not classified as traditional biomass, for cooking and heating purposes, which causes air pollution and has serious potential health implications when used in traditional stoves. These people are mainly in China, but there are also significant numbers in South Africa and India.
