Description:
Access to electricity is one of East Africa’s key constraints. In the majority of the subregion, less than 20 per cent of the population has access to electricity (UNEP, 2014). Firewood and charcoal remain the most common form of energy for cooking and heating in rural areas. Improved access to electricity would significantly contribute to energy security, poverty alleviation, improved health, increased productivity, enhanced competitiveness and economic growth. Furthermore, it would take pressure off forests and reduce deforestation.
