It includes demonstrations of economic analysis for strategies including demand-side management, energy storage, and capacity-building. A wide selection of reliable data is provided to evidence recommended policy approaches and support the reader in developing policy frameworks of their own. Taking into account the technological, economic, and regulatory challenges of the global south and issues of energy access, security, and justice, ‘Energy Policy for the Global South’ is a practical primer on designing sustainable energy policy in these regions, for policymakers, researchers, and industry professionals.
