Universal Access to Energy: Getting the Framework Right – Energy Policy free supplement issue

Energy Policy, The International Journal of the Political, Economic, Planning, Environmental and Social Aspects of Energy, published a supplement issue back in June 2012 that focused on key issues concerning the lack of access to energy for many of the world’s poor. Titled Universal access to energy: Getting the framework right, and supported by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), this special issue details a series of initiatives in Africa and Asia that may go some way towards resolving the limited access to energy in parts of both continents.
