- Dissemination of renewable energy with adaptable technology has received much attention from donor countries under the slogan of Universal Access to Energy in the last recent years. However, despite past failures in deploying the renewables to Least Developed Countries (LDCs) and developing countries, previous studies are unable to find the reasons of failures and possible improvements. They only described higher failure rates of institutional development component in developing renewable energy and its respective constituents.
In order to find the reasons of frequent failures and analyze the institutional development component for deployment of renewable energy in recipient countries, this thesis applied capacity development strategies and capacity assessment framework developed by United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which are widely used in the field of development. This analytical framework was examined by comparative case studies of Burkina Faso and the Philippines to find out how capacity development of individuals and entities that constitute institutions affects the successful deployment renewable energy and secures its sustainability through Official Development Assistance (ODA) policies.
By delineating the process of capacity development in recipient countries for securing renewable energy, this thesis confirmed rationale of dissemination of renewable energy with adaptable technology in LDCs and developing countries. Also, by examining real application cases of capacity development, this thesis offers analysis on ODA policies for dissemination of renewable energy as a stepping stone for further development of recipient countries.
