dc.description.abstractWhile central grid extension often provides electricity at very low cost, the reliability of the central grid in less developed countries is so low that the priority given by policy makers to central grid extension must be questioned. Rather than maximizing the extent of often unreliable or simply unenergized central grid extensions, we sought to show the imperative to consider a multi-track approach to electricity access that includes microgrids and high quality solar lighting products. Through case studies and modeling efforts based on extensive empirical data, this research provides new insight to this imperative and elucidates on the nature of the challenges and solutions for microgrids to eradicate energy poverty.en_US
