- Provides a pathway for achieving access to modern energy for all by 2030, identifying policy priorities, detailing investment needs, and the role that decentralized and ongrid solutions may play
- Analyses how energy development can unleash economic growth in sectors such as agriculture, and explores how energy access intersects with other issues, such as gender, health, and climate change.
