Special Issue Papers

By C. Cañizares, J. Nathwani, and D. Kammen

By J. Nathwani and D. M. Kammen

This article discusses and recommends a global network of Energy Access Innovation Centers (EAICs) dedicated to providing services that bolster solutions for energy-impoverished communities.

By T. S. Ustun, S. M. S. Hussain, H. Kirchhoff, B. Ghaddar, K. Strunz, and I. Lestas

This article focuses on data standardization for electricity access and renewable-energy-based microgrids, since such data would play a significant role in the context of electricity access.

By J. T. Lee, J. Freitas, I. L. Ferrall, D. M. Kammen, E. Brewer, and D. S. Callaway

This article discusses the gathering and use of grid and end-user data, and examines how expanding access to data and data-sharing are likely to provide value and pose risks to key energy-access stakeholders.

By G. P. Holdmann, R. W. Wies, and J. B. Vandermeer

This article explores technical, socio–political, economic, and policy issues associated with the implementation of renewable-diesel hybrid microgrids in Alaska, including lessons learned.

By I. Das and C. A. Cañizares

This article presents planning models and studies that demonstrate the feasibility, impact, and benefits of introducing renewable energy together with variable speed generation technologies in remote microgrids in the Canadian Arctic.

By R. Palma-Behnke, G. A. Jiménez-Estévez, D. Sáez, M. Montedonico, P. Mendoza-Araya, R. Hernández, and C. Muñoz Poblete

This article discusses and illustrates a co-construction methodology for the development of sustainable energy supply solutions that exploit local renewable energy sources in actual energy-limited communities in Chile.

By P. Ciller, D. Ellman, C. Vergara, A. González-García, S. J. Lee, C. Drouin, M. Brusnahan, Y. Borofsky, C. Mateo, R. Amatya, R. Palacios, R. Stoner, F. de Cuadra, and I. Pérez-Arriaga

This article describes and demonstrates an optimization model and program for electrification planning that identifies the lowest cost system designs for electricity access.

By J.-P. Carvallo, J. Taneja, D. Callaway, and D. M. Kammen

This article describes and demonstrates a capacity expansion model to assess the sequencing and pacing of centralized, distributed, and offgrid electrification strategies.

By P. Blechinger, C. Cader, and P. Bertheau

This article presents a modeling process to derive a leastcost electrification plan for five states in Nigeria, combining energy system simulations with geospatial information system tools.

By A. Clements, S. Wheeler, A. Mohr, and M. McCulloch

This article introduces and illustrates a novel method to gather and interpret end-user needs, aspirations, and contextual factors to improve engineering design practices for energy access in impoverished communities.

By A. S. Bahaj and P. A. B. James

This article describes and analyzes four identical capacity rural minigrid interventions undertaken in communities in Kenya and Uganda with differing socioeconomic characteristics and demographics.

By A. Berizzi, M. Delfanti, D. Falabretti, S. Mandelli, and M. Merlo

This article presents a comprehensive review of the approaches and issues associated with microgrid electrification, discussing a “real-life” study case.

By M. Singh and P. Balachandra

This article reports a technoeconomic feasibility and sustainability analysis for a hybrid microgrid in India based on local solar PV and biomass resources.
