Live Wire

January 2014 - present

 

The Live Wire series of online knowledge notes is a new initiative of the World Bank Group's Energy Practice, reflecting the emphasis on knowledge management and solutions-oriented knowledge that is emerging from the ongoing change process within the Bank Group. Each Live Wire delivers in 3-6 attractive, highly readable pages, knowledge that is immediately relevant to front-line practitioners. Live Wires take a variety of forms: 1) topic briefs offer technical knowledge on key energy issues, 2) case studies highlight lessons from experiences in implementation, 3) global trends provide analytical overviews of key energy data, and 4) bank views portray the Bank Group’s energy-sector activities. Live Wire is designed for practitioners inside and outside the Bank. It is a resource to share with clients and counterparts. Each Live Wire is peer-reviewed, and once a year the Energy Practice takes stock of all notes that appeared, reviewing their quality and identifying priority areas to be covered in the following year's pipeline.

 

The briefs are also featured in the bi-monthly newsletter entitled World Bank Energy Digest.

 

Frequency:    Bimonthly

Shedding light on electricity utilities in the Middle East and North Africa : insights from a performance diagnostic (Inglês)

The electricity sector in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is in the grip of an apparent paradox. Although the region is home to the world's largest oil and gas reserves and has been able to maintain electricity access rates of close to 100 percent in most of its economies, it may not be able to cater to the future electricity needs of its fast-growing population and their business activities. ... Exibir mais +
