Energy is central to nearly every major challenge and opportunity the world faces today. The energy shortage is most acute among India’s rural poor and in states such as Bihar, where more than 80% of the population still live in the rural areas; the majority of them still rely on conventional and traditional fuels for their energy needs

To facilitate energy access and a clean energy transition, a new approach has to be thought about. Sustainable technologies and innovative business models have to be implemented with governments, businesses, investors, and civil society coming together to solve public problems.

This report shows how microgrids could be a useful concept for accelerating current rural electrification efforts, support renewable energy integration into energy systems, and create a reliable electricity system.
