New UN Environment Program Featuring Dr. Ashby Monk

Tuesday, April 7, 2015

Mini-grids are an essential element in securing universal energy access in order to empower those living the developing world. Yet, current levels of investment into renewable decentralized energy are insufficient to reach these development goals.

As such, the Stanford Global Projects Center (GPC) is pleased to share the release of a ground breaking United Nations Environment Program. Featuring work by prominent authors including Dr. Ashby Monk of the Global Projects Center, the program outlines an innovative framework for pooling private sector capital in support of international mini-grid portfolios.

Additionally, the program considers the complex risk profile mini-grids have in emerging markets as well as the size of individual mini-grid projects impacting their financial viability. To download a copy of the UNEP program, please visit here.
