Energy Access: Country Perspective

P. 117-136.

The global discourse on universal energy access became part of the mainstream development agenda only about a decade ago. The beginning was probably made when world leaders adopted eight millennium development goals (MDGs) at the United Nations (UN) headquarters in New York in 2000. Though universal access to energy was not among the eight goals chosen, it is reasonable to assume that there was implicit understanding that without universal access to modern energy services it would not be possible to achieve most of the MDGs. A 2005 report by the UN observed that lack of access to modern energy would limit ability to achieve the MDGs. This paper aims to examine initiatives for universal energy access in four BRICS nations and identify country-specific challenges, with a view to promoting knowledge sharing among emerging and developing countries
