This report is the first in a series of three issue briefs on "Keys to Achieving Universal Energy Access," a three-day workshop held by WRI and the DOEN Foundation. It describes four common core business strategies employed by energy enterprises that understand the energy needs of low-income consumers in developing countries, and it provides examples of how these distributed renewable energy strategies were implemented.
