Electrification and Rural Electrification

Electrification of rural areas is a key driver behind reduction of poverty and socio-cultural, economic and political development of a country. Health services, education, information and communication technologies, industry, food storage and safe water supply all demand abundant energy.  Hence, a reliable and affordable energy access is essential for raising basic standards of living, and reduced negative impact of energy use on health and local environment.

In addition, to meet existing and future demands of the new rural users, new power plants may be built or existing plants' generation capacity increased, creating employment on the supply side (energy service delivery chain) and on the demand side (rural industries, productive uses).

Although rural electrification can reduce negative impact of energy use on health and local environment, potential conflicts with land use and the environmental impact concerns on the effects of generating and distributing electricity in rural areas need also to be considered.
