  1. Renewable energy projects, at both the small rooftop solar and grid-scale, are the best way to bridge the capacity gap in these countries cost-effectively. No one is building $6Bn centralized power grid systems anymore.
  2. Private companies, small and large, are willing to fill the gap left by governmental inefficiencies and provide power to desiring citizens and businesses. These businesses just require government to mitigate the risks of their investments utilizing policies borrowed from developing countries but customized for local structures.
  3. Innovation at the entrepreneurial level will lead to cost effective power generation which will translate into affordable power for consumers.
