Abstract: Access to modern energy services is a fundamental prerequisite for property reduction and sustainable human development. Many remote rural South African communities are characterized by low energy demand and low population densities, making centralised energy generation and transmission prohibitively costly. However, most rural areas are endowed with renewable energy resources that can be transformed into usable energy appropriate to rural and remote ares. This study explores the use of modern and hybrid energy supply for poverty reduction and environment protection in remote rural areas of South Africa. A conceptual and practical framework is presented that incorporates sustainable livelihoods thinking with the provision of sustainable enerygy services to inform poverty reduction policy.
