India has 75 million households without access to electricity and per capita consumption in rural households was only 8 units per month as compared 24 units in urban households, according to an expert report submitted to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Monday.

The report, submitted by a network of parliamentarians working to promote renewable energy, also says India is endowed with huge renewable energy (RE) resources, but the country’s per capita energy consumption is one of the lowest in the world.

Most Sub-Saharan African countries try to promote rural electrification through both centralized and decentralized approaches. This guide focuses on the decentralized approach, providing practical guidance on how small power producers and mini-grid operators can deliver both electrification and renewable energy in rural areas.

The National Green Tribunal (NGT) has issued notices to the ministry of environment and forests (MoEF), ministry of power, National Hydroelectric Power Corporation (NHPC) and the state governments

This is the continuation of Biogas Power (Off-grid) Programme during 2013-14 and the remaining period of 12th Five Year Plan. Biogas technology provides an alternative source of energy mainly from organic wastes. It is produced when bacteria degrade organic matter in the absence of air.

This paper explores energy access, energy poverty, and energy development as energy security concerns confronting Asia and the Pacific. Improved access to energy services is arguably the key defining characteristic of economic development.
