Standards supporting rural electrification at discounted price

To help bring electrical energy to some of the 750 million people without access or with only limited energy access, the IEC, World Bank Group and United Nations Foundation have a cooperative agreement to provide developing countries with access to important technical documents that support rural electrification, at a specially discounted price.

The IEC Technical Specification 62257 series Recommendations for small renewable energy and hybrid systems for rural electrification outlines international best practice solutions to support energy access in developing countries across a range of technologies. The three organizations are cooperating to offer discounts to qualified stakeholders purchasing documents in the IEC TS 62257 series.

The IEC 62257 series contains numerous technical specifications which address three main topics – introduction to rural electrification; project management and implementation guidelines; and technical specifications for components and systems. The IEC TS 62257 series also provides assistance to the project implementer, with information on how to select the right product based on what is available in their local market, product tests to be performed under the local future field conditions, and technical and economic aspects of equipment, skills required etc.

The details of the available discounts are:
75 % discount on IEC TS 62257-9-5 (with or without all normative references)
75 % discount on IEC TS 62257-9-8 (with or without all normative references)
58% discount on entire IEC TS 62257 series + all normative references
or 50% discount on any individual documents in the IEC TS 62257 series
