Lack of access to electricity and modern cooking fuels constitutes energy poverty. Access to modern energy requires improved technologies and financing
instruments and sources. The pro-poor public–private partnership model is one useful vehicle for raising capital to finance projects. Five factors appear to be
necessary in combination for programs and partnerships to successfully promote energy access and eradicate energy poverty: selecting appropriate technology,promoting community participation, emphasizing maintenance and service, coupling service with incomes, and building local capacity.
