Global Summit to Strengthen Public-Private Partnerships to Accelerate Global Electricity Technology Deployment (Part 1)
2 Jun 2011 -  The e8 and UN-Energy, with many partners are launching the global initiative for “Strengthening Public-Private Partnerships” to advance sustainable energy development at the above meeting. The focus of the initiative is to jointly identify effective and meaningful partnerships that support and promote the global deployment of low and zero-emitting electricity technologies at country, regional and global levels.

The e8 and UN-Energy have conducted a global survey and analyzed many submitted case studies highlighting the enabling policies and best practices of public-private partnerships.

The report, to be handed out at the meeting, provides the analysis that will be the basis of the discussions for supporting significant progress towards global electricity access by 2030.
At this Global Summit, top leaders in the public and private sectors and civil society will discuss the following issues:

- Role of public-private partnerships best practices to effectively establish energy policies;
- Importance of long term stable policy frameworks to meet goals; and
- Integration of partnerships into electricity & energy services development plans.

The e8, UN-Energy and its partners believe that increased energy access through technology deployment plans with enabling public policies, and an attractive financial risk-reward atmosphere created by public-private partnerships, will enable countries in achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

Integration of partnerships into electricity & energy services development plans.
