This paper offers a commercial solution to the energy access challenge. According to the authors, a significant proportion of the estimated 1.3 billion people (about 300 million households) around the world living without access to basic levels of modern energy services can be reached by 2030. They estimate that it would require much less capital than previously assumed to achieve this goal by replicating how the distributed energy service company, or DESCO model functions.
