This book is about the ?able? in sustainable energy. It is about the ?can do?, describing clearly the choices taken by decision makers in various parts of East and South Asia on how to improve access to energy, on how to give more prominence to renewable energy and how to get maximum energy efficiency out of existing systems. Everywhere, each challenge has its unique features and it also shares many similarities with the challenges facing other decision makers. Extending energy services to people, households, public services and businesses not yet on the grid is so much more easily said than done. There are many good reasons why the grid has not reached them ? distance, geography, time, priorities, costs. It is not, normally, a question of will. It is question of being able. And extending those services whilst squeezing more efficiency out of them, and adopting new sources of energy at the same time, requires the skills of a juggler. The new forms of energy are subject to new variables for planners and managers, such as wind frequency, rainfall patterns and solar radiation. They offer new possibilities, for clean and decentralized production of electricity, often on a small-scale. What re-training can help energy professionals, schooled in centralized production and distribution to adapt to a scenario where generation and delivery are separate and decentralized?
