Sustainable Energy for AllThe Energy Access Practitioner Network has released its April 2013 newsletter, featuring a practitioner’s perspective from the non-profit Innovation: Africa on the installation of 63 rural solar projects, as well as updates on the Practitioner Network’s activities and workshops, funding opportunities, recent reports, new members, upcoming events, and other announcements.
Opening the newsletter, Richenda Van Leeuwan, Executive Director of the UN Foundation’s Energy and Climate, Energy Access Initiative, reports that the Practitioner Network is exploring opportunities to strengthen financing for members and build new partnerships in Asia, based on a workshop it held in Phnom Penh in March “Towards Universal Energy Access: An Asian Perspective.”
Van Leeuwan also reports details of the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Initiative’s High Impact Opportunity on Energy & Women’s Health, to be co-led by the UN Foundation, UN Women, and World Health Organization (WHO).
The UN Foundation established the Energy Access Practitioner Network in 2011 to identify and address market barriers to energy service delivery in support of the UN Secretary-General’s SE4All Initiative.
