Abstract

Advantages and challenges of an integrated approach to energy for development are presented through the Malawi Renewable Energy Acceleration Programme (MREAP) within context of the development of the Malawian energy sector. Initial indications suggest synergies exist between sub-programs of work that would otherwise be less likely to occur in non-integrated programs. Likewise, additional challenges such as coordination and management are required to realize the potential benefits. This paper presents a survey of the Malawian energy sector, an energy for development research framework and a programmatic outcome strategy designed for MREAP.
