Electricity products as small as solar lanterns or as large as mini-grids connecting many households play a significant role in electricity access across Africa and Asia. These ‘decentralised energy systems’ complement grid extension, but need public and private investment of over USD20 billion annually to meet the ambition of the SDGs. It has taken a decade to reach about USD2 billion worth of investments into private companies. Looking to 2030, IIED has identified aggregation as a promising accelerant to energy access, one that should interest impact investors, institutional financiers, foundations and others.
