Informing Power Sector Transformation in Sub-Saharan Africa

Learning from Experiences in the Global South

Covid-19 has had significant and varied impacts on countries in the global South, and the responses of these countries to this pandemic have been similarly varied. This brief explores a wide range of Covid-19 power-sector responses from developing countries in Latin America and Asia, especially examples with a direct link to renewable energy (RE). It includes new and repurposed responses (including policies, programmes, projects, initiatives, and funds) implemented by a wide range of agents (including governments, the private sector, civil society, donors, and others). However, it has a particular focus on the role that governments played in directly or indirectly enabling and implementing responses.
