Each stakeholder involved in humanitarian relief has, in its own capacity, access to the knowledge and expertise necessary to provide sustainable energy solutions in displacement settings. This can be enabled by conducive institutional structures, the ability to access common repositories, exchange platforms and global discussion groups, the availability of professional training and the possibility to draw specialist help from external resources. Enabling factors to achieve this vision are:

  • Institutional structures that enable in-house capacity for strategic energy programming and are conducive to partnerships that draw technical expertise from outside the humanitarian sector;
  • Tailored training packages in operational form to meet capacity and knowledge needs of each stakeholder;
  • A common central knowledge-sharing and practitioner-connection platform specifically on energy for humanitarian settings; and
  • Mechanisms to analyse and evaluate technical quality and effectiveness of energy-service delivery
