Abstract

Governments across the developing world have made rural electrification a high priority over the last two decades. Yet despite the rapid expansion of the power sector during this period, by 1990, only about 44 percent of the more than 3.3 billion people living in rural areas had access to grid-based electricity. Given the constraints of high capital costs and maintenance, there is little chance of achieving universal rural electrification through conventional grid services.
