Powering the countryside - The Lao PDR rural electrification success story : De l'électricité dans les campagnesn - Les réussites du Programme d'électrification des zones rurales en RDP lao (Francês)

This Results Profile focuses on Rural Electrification Program in Lao PDR. The underdeveloped state of rural infrastructure in Lao PDR was a major constraint to rural economic growth and poverty alleviation. Only 8 percent of rural Lao households were connected to the electricity grid. The Bank’s programs in the power sector in Lao PDR have combined investments with policy assistance and capacity building. As a result, electricity access had increased almost five-fold, reaching 71 percent of the population. The program designed an innovative system to manage the off-grid connections in remote areas. Solar home systems and small village based hydro schemes helped electrify more than 23,000 households in villages without grid coverage. The program supported the development of the Laotian power sector, extending the electricity grid to rural households and also promoting off-grid renewable energy throughout the country.
