(Policy) Roundtable discussion

Solar microgrids are the lowest cost option for ending energy poverty for 800 million people. The World Bank says the potential is for 200,000 microgrids, yet only 19,000 exist today – $200 billion in investment is needed, yet only $5 billion has been deployed. The gap is huge and climate finance is critical to scale, along with more conducive government regulations to promote public-private partnership
