Abstract

Improved access to low-cost energy is a key factor in the battle to ­alleviate poverty and achieve basic development goals. The outcomes of combined development and energy efficiency programmes in Senegal, Nicaragua, China and Ukraine demonstrate that better energy efficiency can also contribute to health and ­education, particularly among women and children in developing countries. Improving energy efficiency can significantly increase the returns on rural economic investments and can contribute to energy security and support sustainable economic growth.
