CALL TO ACTION / Roadmap for the decentralised renewables sector to survive and flourish in the wake of the covid-19 crisis

CLUB-ER joins forces with the community of actors of access to electricity to speak with common voice on the situation of programs and projects of access to energy in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please find here, as well as on the CLUB-ER website, the document intended to be an advocacy for a better consideration of the rural electrification sector.
