Energy for all: Financing access for the poor
The Government of Norway will convene a high-level conference, "Energy for All - Financing Access for the Poor", in Oslo on 10-11 October 2011. It will build on the premise laid out in the World Energy Outlook (WEO) 2010 that there is a need for substantial new financing in order to achieve energy access for all. The key objective of the conference is to explore financing solutions and supporting policies for increased energy access in the context of a more sustainable energy future. Conference participants will be high-level leading representatives of governments, IEA/OECD, EU, multilateral organisations, financial institutions, utilities and civil society.
