Using Batteries to ensure clean, reliable and affordable universal electricity access

This position paper lies at the core of the Energy Storage Campaign that the Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) launched in June 2013 that aims at informing on the added value of using batteries for off-grid renewable energy systems and as grid backup. It is also expected that the six-month technology-focussed campaign will stimulate debate between the public sector and non-state stakeholders on the existing barriers for the battery sector and alternatives that stimulate its development.
