Powering the Poor: Projects to Increase Access to Clean Energy for All

The Asian Development Bank (ADB) is committed to helping achieve access to energy for all people in the region. The stories in this publication - told through villagers and those helping them on the ground - portray resourceful ways of giving poor and remote communities access to clean and renewable energy. The case studies look at different types of energy projects - solar, micro hydro and biogas - as well as innovative approaches in implementing and financing projects.
