Energyanddevelopment.com is a website dedicated to exploring the role of energy in development, disseminating research, articles and success stories in the field and serving as a forum for the global community in this important area. Energyanddevelopment.com is also the home to the quarterly newsletter Energy and Development. Energy and Development exists for the dissemination and exchange of information on energy sector best practices worldwide. Together these two tools seek to promote greater understanding of the importance and role of energy in development and emerging economies in addressing poverty alleviation in all aspects.

Today, tens of millions of people are unable to reach their potential because they lack sufficient resources: access to clean, affordable energy being of the major obstacles to their growth and development. Hundreds of millions more, particularly women and children, face a life of drudgery, increased morbidity and premature mortality because of the energy they do consume. This can all be changed by building on the successes, sharing best practices, and working together to mainstream energy and development. This website seeks to provide tools, share experiences, and be a general platform for these issues.
