Pushing for better power in Tanzania
Reflect & Act, 2 pages
In Tanzania, electricity services are expanding, yet they are failing to deliver a high-quality service to end-users. The Energy Change Lab initiative has looked at how information channels and customer feedback mechanisms can be used to ensure that the electricity sector becomes more transparent and accountable to those it serves. A number of prototype solutions are being piloted, drawing on models from other countries and those developed by stakeholders in Tanzania.
As part of a global advocacy programme and network promoting renewable energy access, IIED and partners built a social innovation ‘Energy Change Lab’ that works with pioneers in Tanzania to build an energy system that is sustainable and people-centred.
