The electrification challenge
Utilities everywhere struggle with the “last mile”, where tough landscapes, unreliable infrastructure and poor connectivity make operations difficult and costly. In the hardest to reach places, consumers go unserved, relying instead on alternatives - diesel generators, wood fuel, kerosene lamps - that cost 10 - 100x more than grid power. As a result, 2bn people have little or no access to electricity. To reach this kind of consumer, utilities need new technology.
