CEEW Energy Access Dialogues

18 Oct 2019   |   1500-1700 hrs (IST)

Organised by CEEW and SELCO Foundation

About the event

CEEW Energy Access Dialogues are a quarterly forum where researchers and practitioners discuss their ongoing work in energy access, will deliberate on its implications, explore possibilities for collaborative work, and review immediate priorities in the energy access space.

The third edition will focus on challenges in financing for micro-enterprises using solar-powered appliances. The discussion would be driven by our recent study with SELCO Foundation, which captures the risk perception of financiers to lend for such products. The study also generates evidence, based on financial data of 300 micro-enterprises, to argue that solar-powered livelihood appliances could be economically viable investments for financiers and could address other developmental challenges.
