More than a connection: crowdsourcing data to assess and improve the quality of electricity supply

Tuesday, April 4th: 13:45 - 14:45 - Building 313

HOST: World Resources Institute


Grid supply in many developing countries is struggling to keep up with demand, resulting in unreliable and inadequate electricity service. Innovative solutions like decentralized renewable energy and energy efficiency can be integrated into traditional grid services to help solve the problem. Open, granular, and credible data on the quality of supply are key to catalyzing discussion about what actions can be taken, who will benefit from them, and how results of investments can be monitored. The goal of this session is to share experiences with collecting data on the quality of supply and improving access to electricity along multiple dimensions.
