Misguided thinking about the role power plays in boosting economic development is a major hurdle when it comes to providing energy access to the estimated 1 billion people worldwide who lack it and the estimated 3 billion who have to rely on poor and expensive grid services, according to a recent article published in Scientific American.
Here's a list of the five myths addressed in the article:
- Lights equal modern energy
- Energy access can solve energy poverty
- Emerging markets don't need big power because they will leapfrog heavy industry
- Climate change will affect Africans the most, so they will have to consume less energy
- We already have all the technology we need.
