Close to 1.2 billion people today lack access to electricity and more than 2.7 billion people rely on biomass for cooking. There is wide consensus on limiting global warming to below 2°C, on the role renewables can play and on the need to track current and shape future energy development pathways. LTS is increasingly working in the energy sector, particularly on bioenergy projects. Our experts provide guidance in scoping, planning, evaluation and analysis of this emerging and fast changing renewable energy sector.
Our experience tells us that achieving universal energy access requires a concerted and systemic approach, taking into consideration the policy landscape, livelihood generation potential, gender impacts, GHG reduction potential, last mile connection and long term sustainability. We use our experience to help clients assess, review and develop smart, practical and actionable strategies that strengthen resilience to climate change and guide the development of sound renewable energy initiatives.
