Alleviating Urban Energy Poverty in the Informal Sector: the Role for Local Government

This paper sets out to explore the challenges of energy service delivery in informal settlements through developmental local government approaches. It concludes that these developmental challenges require transformation at multiple levels of government in order to fulfil the constitutional objectives of poverty alleviation and to promote development and growth in South Africa. At the local level, responsive solutions and capacity is required, while at the macro-level, strengthened leadership and enhanced intergovernmental coordination is required to change the status quo (Wolpe, P. & Reddy, Y., Sustainable Energy Africa, 2012).
