Funding clean energy access for the poor: Can the World Bank meet the challenge?

This paper from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation and BIC Europe examines the approach put forward in the WBG’s Energy Directions Paper (ED Paper) to determine if more could be done by the WBG to improve progress towards the SEforAll goals.  This paper focuses on two of the three SEforAll goals – those addressing universal access and renewable energy and does not cover the goal on energy efficiency.  Furthermore, within universal access, this paper focuses on access to electricity and does not cover access to clean cooking solutions.
