The International Energy Agency's (IEA) World Energy Outlook (WEO) has tracked country-by-country data on access to electricity and clean cooking for over fifteen years. Its unique database provides a historical time series from 2000 to present for over 100 countries on access to electricity and clean cooking.
The latest in the WEO report series, Energy Access Outlook 2017 expands and updates the WEO’s country-by-country data on energy access, assessing the status of over 140 countries and reviewing recent trends and policy efforts up to 2016. The report explores pathways to universal energy access by 2030, including policy priorities, investment needs, and the role that decentralised and on-grid solutions can play, with a dedicated chapter on sub-Saharan Africa. It also presents analyses of how energy development can unleash economic growth in sectors such as agriculture, and how energy access intersects with other issues such as gender, health and climate change.
