4 0% - 30% 60% - 80% 80% - 90% 30% - 60% 90% - 96% 96% - 100% Nearly one in five people around the world do not have access to modern energy services 1.3 billion people lack access to electricity, and an even larger number of people are under-electrified facing constant outages Global Electrification Rates Base of the pyramid consumers pay the highest relative cost for electricity and energy access, e.g. lighting typically accounts for 10 to 15% of total household income Over 95% of people without electricity live in Sub-Saharan Africa or Developing Asia The poor spend $37 billion on poor-quality energy solutions to meet their lighting and cooking needs Over the past four decades, the gap between energy supply and demand in Africa has widened 4

5 Countries such as Uganda have made slow progress, and electrification rates remain very low (approximately 11%) Those with access to power often experience long days of outages and intermittence in electricity (> 70 days a year, >100 hr/mo) Ugandans (consumers and businesses) who require power are forced to pay high costs for alternative sources (diesel-powered generators can cost upwards of $1 - $3 /kWh) Fewer than 11% of Ugandans Have Access to (unreliable) Grid Electricity 5

6 Those who lack electricity lack opportunities for development Electricity access is a necessary component for growth Global Human Development Index 85% of the variation in HDI can be correlated to per capita electricity consumption 6

9 Systems Approach: C x E x E x E A partnership between Accenture and Notre Dame in the development of an renewable-powered economic ecosystem in a box C: ICT4D ND expertise, and more than 7 years of BOSCO experience at 30+ sites in Uganda, delivering reliable affordable internet and ICT training to communities at the edge. E: Renewable Energy NDIGD, and College of Engineering renewable energy expertise plus industry partners solutions to provide a rugged, energy-efficient renewable microgrids E: Education for Solar, ICT and Entrepreneurship Schools, Universities and education NGO partners to develop and implement technical and user training to develop and grow local capacity. E: Fostering Entrepreneurship Leveraging Accentures global Skills to Succeed platform in partnership with Educate! to deliver entrepreneurial education, experiential learning and mentoring to fuel the potential of the Ugandan people to develop new businesses and improve their livelihoods 9

10 C: Connectivity = ICT to accelerate and inform development ICTs reduce isolation, encourage self-expression, strengthen community, and foster hope to energize constructive change Leapfrogging missing infrastructure, ICTs promote efficient training, formation of partnerships, and information flow concerning market conditions and best practices to guide development efforts For every 10 % increase in broadband penetration we can expect an average of 1.38% additional growth in national GDP. (Source: World Bank; Qiang 2009) [ICT] is the best gift anyone could offer to the youth of Sankuru. If you can break yourself into pieces for the Congo, do it for this cause Fr. Albert Shuyaka Post-conflict cathartic healing and release through blogging, wikis and social media. Acholi Nun orders a well from an NGO using BOSCO Internet services ICT helps restored communities develop partnerships and stay informed 10

11 E: Electricity, sustainable from both an environmental and an economic perspective Each project location is built around an anchor tenant that agrees to use significant amount of the energy, and pay a specific rate comparable to on-grid electricity (UGX 2000/kWh ~ $0.80/kWh) – In Phase 1, anchor tenants are schools and community centers – In Phases 2 and 3, agricultural users, hospitals, businesses and other anchor tenants are being considered In order to scale, the energy cost model must be established and competitive with alternative energy providers Recovering energy production costs allows for – Long term sustainability – O&M, growth – Establishment of energy entrepreneurs (micro utility, service providers, installers, …) 11

12 EE: Entrepreneurial Education Powered by Accentures Skill to Succeed and Local Partnerships Accenture and ND are partnering with local NGOs that provide entrepreneurial education and will serve anchor tenants of energy – Educate! at the King James comprehensive school in Lira – BOSCO Uganda at the Pabbo Education & Research Centre – 31 Lengths at the St. Marys Lacor Secondary School Accenture will leverage the global Skills to Succeed platform to improve partners entrepreneurship training and provide people with skills necessary for employment –Accenture provides mentoring for start-up and expansion for entrepreneurs –Accenture provides project management, online module creation, and partnership design services in the development of a customized curriculum –BOSCO-Uganda coordinates pilot testing, data collection and assessment Leveraging partnerships and Accentures platform in the development of an entrepreneurial curriculum 12

14 How we are evaluating impact and outcomes 14 Energy System Evaluation –Are the systems getting enough solar power and energy? –How are consumers using the power? –What rate are they paying? Is this sustainable? Economic Impact –How many people are trained in entrepreneurship or with business skills? –What is the outcome of the introduction of electricity on new and existing businesses? –How will the projects benefit each community? Number of people per site –Lira – secondary school students, expanding to community access over time –Lacor – ~1000+ secondary school students, expanding to community access –Pabbo – dozens of local businesses, training impact on ~1000s of community members Monitoring and impact evaluation will be completed by Notre Dames Initiative for Global Development team, with oversight by Accenture Development Partnerships (ADP)

16 M&E Baseline – Energy, Economics and Employment Baseline energy use statistics indicate existing demand for resilient and remote electricity. Can we decrease the cost and increase the availability? Note 10% of people connected; Enterprises more likely to need/afford power
