Outcomes & Impacts

EnDev now seeks to support access to electricity and improved cooking for more than 36 million people by 2025. As of December 2023, EnDev’s results stand at:

More Highlights

  • 24.2 million

    people with access to modern cooking solutions
  • 7.4 million

    people with access to electricity

  • 33,940

    social institutions like schools and health centres benefit from modern energy access
  • 102,820

    micro, small and medium-sized enterprises benefit from productive uses of energy

  • 2.91 million tons

    tonnes of CO2e saved per year
  • 32,610 people

    are newly employed in jobs that can be attributed to EnDev

Sustainable access to modern energy has multiple positive effects on nearly all aspects of social and economic life, and even the environment. As a result of access to energy, impacts are evident across a broad range of socio-economic dimensions including poverty alleviation, health, gender, and income generation. 


Monitoring & Evaluation

EnDev’s achievements speak for themselves. More than 31 million people now benefit, across social and economic dimensions, from access to modern energy.  However, reported achievements require an equally powerful system for monitoring. A robust and reliable system for monitoring and evaluation delivers high quality data on energy access to individuals, institutions and enterprises, supported by macro-level data on markets, public health and climate mitigation. Reporting of results follows diligent and transparent monitoring methodologies, avoiding duplication.

But the numbers don’t stop there. Impact and sustainability studies provide information that link energy access, poverty alleviation, economic and social development, gender and the needs of vulnerable groups like refugees and displaced persons. Reports, strategies and further information about EnDev’s achievements can be found here.

EnDev’s state-of-the-art monitoring approach includes a comprehensive verification and validation system. Solid verification and validation of EnDev’s monitoring and reporting procedures safeguards reliability and traceability of reported outcomes​ and increases transparency and accountability.

  • Documenting



    Data Collection

    With the energy access finding its way to the target groups, diligent documentation of data starts. Each technology, product or service is captured (i.e. solar systems, cookstoves or mini-grid connections) and complemented with key data such as geographic location, target group and implementing partner.
  • Checking in


    Checking in:

    Data Verification

    As a first level of quality assurance, paper trail data sets are assessed for completeness, accuracy, and plausibility; phone and field verification ensure that the new or improved energy access exists, corresponds to the reported data sets and is being used by the beneficiaries.
  • Safeguarding



    Data Aggregation

    All data sets from country projects are submitted to the centralized annual monitoring process and undergo a second-level assessment focussing on completeness and consistency. Only now data sets are fit to be accepted for global reporting.
  • Adjusting



    Data Analysis

    EnDev stands for a robust and conservative monitoring approach. Global data undergoes a final step that takes into account three monitoring factors: attribution, additionality, and sustainability. This ensures that reported achievements can be directly linked to the activities implemented, would not have happened without EnDev’s support and are long-lasting.
