Renewable Energy Technologies for Rural Electrification - The Role of the Private Sector
ARE has developed this important statement to reflect what the industry is doing for rural electrification in terms of products, services and financing, what are the challenges ahead (based on the industry experience) and what is the role of ARE vis-à-vis to this industry.
The Paper has been circulated among ARE supporters and has been fully backed up by all our members and a number of relevant industries within the field of rural electrification.
A joint position of some of the most important industry actors presenting commercially viable and field proven renewable energy technologies for rural electrification, and experience based recommendations, will constitute a powerful instrument to impulse the sector and to get the messages of ARE across to the right people.
Therefore, this statement will be widely distributed to, among others, the European Institutions, international and financial organizations, development banks, donors and different regional, national and local authorities to provide the views of the industry and the importance of assessing the challenges of rural electrification that are currently preventing the development of healthy decentralized energy.
