Dr. Leena Srivastava is one of the most prominent global thinkers in the field of sustainable development, energy and environment. She is currently the Vice Chancellor of the TERI University and Honorary Executive Director at TERI. She serves on numerous boards and high-level committees both at the international and national levels such as, to name a few, the executive committee of the Sustainable Energy for All initiative of the UN Secretary General, the advisory board of the World Economic Forum and the scientific advisory panel of the Climate and Clean Air Coalition, whose common denominator is to improve the state of the world.

So I think the development community needs to recognise that if you want to not only get energy access but also get energy access right from the start in an efficient manner, then the thing to do is to invest in human capacities, to skill the potential entrepreneurs and allow them to develop the business sense that is required for successfully running an energy access enterprise.
