The principle objective of the project is to improve energy services in Bangladesh through increasing access to electricity among the poor. In the broader economic goal of reducing poverty, by deepening the involvement of the community based stakeholders, the project broadens the range of electrification options, thereby creating alternatives to state-led provision of electricity services.
