There are 1.2 billion people who has little or no access to electricity, and at least 600.000 million of them live in Sub-Saharan Africa. Readiness for Investment in Sustainable Energy methodology (RISE) aims to influence and reach the three main SE4ALL initiatives. This short report compares energy access of two African countries such as TANZANIA and KENIA, showing how can differences on the RISE scoring valuation at Planning, Regulations and Policies, Pricing and Subsidies, and Procedural Efficiency, can indicate reference points to see how they are performing compared with other ones, and how to get where they want to be.



At Planning Electrification Procedures they both are considered close to good practice. When analysing Procedural efficiency, they got the same RISE score although they present different distance to frontier approach. TANZANIA has more efficient business environment because of their better policies and regulations than KENYA, that receives  more support from subsidies and pricing.

Whether one way or another, the combination of grid, mini-grip and off grid energy systems drives universal energy access on the best direction. Based on the needs of the rural community or deprived areas, with a legal and regulatory framework, agreements between the shareholders, support from to government to smaller developers, subsidies programmes and private funds, and also decentralization of energy solution´s providers, any plan can empower wider systems to reach an affordable, relievable, sustainable and universal energy access.
