Policymakers aiming to maximise the transformative power of electricity
are interested in answering 2 questions:
- What level of electricity access is required to enable and sustain
- Which other factors need to be in place for electricity to be used
productively and lead to income generation?
This review aims to provide further light on the questions above by
identifying the links between different levels of access to electricity
and their impact on poverty reduction as reported by existing evidence
