Silveira, Semida Rural electrification Remote areas Universal access Amazon region 15 páginas The Brazilian rural electrification initiative Luz Para Todos – LPT (Light for All) has attracted attention internationally due to its ambitious targets and significant achievements in the last decade. The initiative has proved effective in its first phase, which has been developed through the extension of the grid. Yet, there are still important challenges to provide the service to inhabitants of remote areas in the Brazilian Amazon. We identify these challenges within institutional, technology, and funding structures operating within LPT. In line with these challenges, we propose a pathway to facilitate the achievement of universal electricity access in remote areas of the region. The proposed pathway is based on three key leverage points: (i) rules guiding the relationship among new agents and communities; (ii) the implementation of small-scale power generation technologies based on local resources; and (iii) optimized subsidies. It has the potential to allow (i) a better dimensioning of off-grid solutions considering local resources and realities, (ii) the creation of adapted institutions capable of implementing and operating the required systems and, (iii) an effective operation of off-grid solutions. 2019-08-28T19:16:23Z 2019-08-28T19:16:23Z 2015-07 article publishedVersion 0301-4215 https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301421515000919#! http://hdl.handle.net/10818/36913 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.enpol.2015.02.018 eng Energy Policy Volume 82, July 2015, Pages 23-37 Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/ openAccess application/pdf Energy Policy Universidad de La Sabana Intellectum Repositorio Universidad de La Sabana
