Hardest-to-Reach: Unlocking Clean Energy Investments for Those Living Beyond the Grid
What Will it Take to Reach the Unelectrified?
Approximately 789 million people live without access to energy today. Grid extension and off-grid solar solutions will reach many of them over the next decade. However, roughly 215 million people will be left behind because they live in risky or remote areas where investors have been unwilling to go.
Climate investors have an unprecedented opportunity to avert greenhouse gas emissions while decarbonizing the future of these economies and providing low-income communities a pathway out of poverty. But with all of the challenges facing hard-to-reach markets, it’s abundantly clear that a traditional investment approach is insufficient.
