Describes the design and use of a particular management model for electricity services in isolated rural communities

This book describes an innovative model for the organization of electricity services, developed and tested by Practical Action as part of its research and development into access to electricity services in remote rural areas and the sustainability of these services.
This small enterprise model was designed with the clear objective of ensuring efficient financial and technical management to take into account the social and economic environment, and to encourage the committed participation of the community. The concept of private management is introduced, where a micro-enterprise is responsible for the running of the system and receives payment in exchange for the management of the service.
To date, the model has been piloted in five small hydroelectric plants in the north of Peru, with very positive results. It is proposed that this model could also be used successfully in other energy-generating systems (diesel, solar, wind-powered) with only minor changes.
This book will be of interest to all stakeholders in rural electrification: rural electrification organizations at government and private level, researchers on sustainable energy, implementers of rural energy schemes, policy makers, and also students and teachers of courses related to rural energy.
