Energy is needed for the day-to-day functioning of rural households (cooking, lighting, and running appliances) as well as for livelihoods (agriculture and small businesses). In rural India, where access to energy sources is often poor and availability is unreliable, many households resort to using multiple energy sources to service their energy needs. In both cases, there are reasons grid access has not yet arrived, ranging from corruption to lack of funding. The poor, almost by definition, lack political power, and resources tend to flow to the politically powerful. Energy decisions — especially centralized energy decisions.
At a time when even developed countries are feeling poor — or at least poorer than they once were — $48 billion a year sounds like a fair chunk of change, but it actually only amounts to about 3% of yearly global energy investment, which should give you a sense of just how vast the worldwide energy industry is.

This Second Edition is entirely rewritten. The book highlights new issues involving rural electrification. Limited access to clean and safe energy sources such as solar or grid electricity remains a critical problem for millions of rural Indian households.
More than million people depend on traditional, inefficient biomass fuels for lighting, running appliances, cooking, and economic uses.

However, technology alone is not enough and universal access requires sustaina-ble operation and business models, political efforts. RENEWABLE ENERGY TECHNOLOGIES FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT 1.
