The common theme that runs through this book and the workshop is the identification of, and solutions to, the twin problems of energy poverty and expanded access to modern energy services in Africa. The discussions cover key issues, challenges and constraints to the elimination of energy poverty and expanded energy access in both urban and rural areas. Also covered are solutions based on the sustainable exploitation and utilization of the region's abundant, though unequally distributed, renewable and non-renewable energy resources. What emerges is the need for a paradigm shift in the development and management of Africa's energy sector backed up by policy continuity and credibility in the sector's reform process. Most fundamental to the effectiveness of a solution to the energy poverty and expanded access problems is translating the ideas in this book to practice propelled by good governance and political accountability.
