Abstract

© 2019 The unavailability of tangible policy benchmarks continues to mitigate against sustainable electrification in the global south. Furthermore, incoherent policy benchmarks as to what should constitute clean energy allow for varying interpretations and divergent options in electrifying households across the global south. The multiplicity of policies to deepen access to improved energy services in the global south notwithstanding, ‘success’ is not in sight until definite and uniform benchmarks guide the roll-out of electrification schemes.
