The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the current status of the village inventory project in India, which pilots a methodology that captures the vital information required in order to better understand the lack of access to basic energy services at the village level, and aims to increase the chances of success for  village electrification schemes by providing more detailed information, e.g., availability of resources and skills. Furthermore, participants will discuss the latest draft of a White Paper which talks about the methodology and the experience in India, and describes the way forward.
