Big development banks are pouring billions into energy projects in developing countries. Between 2000 and 2014, the World Bank Group alone invested $63.5 billion in electricity access. But we still have more than 1.5 billion people without access to energy services. What is the disconnect?
This week, we'll talk about one of the biggest institutional barriers to energy access -- why multilateral development banks are not set up to solve energy poverty quickly.
We'll talk to Aaron Leopold, the deputy director for global advocacy at Power for All, about how to speed up energy access by changing the way we think about traditional centralized grid investments.
Then, are prominent business journalists willfully ignoring the growth in U.S. clean energy jobs?
