In developing countries, due to the total lack of access to energy systems in some regions or its availability to only high income households in the society, amenities deemed basic in developed countries, such as reliable and resilient energy systems, can in fact be classed as luxurious attributes [1]. The impact of the lack of access to modern energy systems, not only attributes to the poor quality of life experienced in these countries but also plays a vital role in health and environmental issues, whilst causing severe hindrance to the social and economic developments in these countries. Consequently, the aim of this research is to develop optimised energy policies and business models to facilitate the alleviation of energy poverty whilst concurrently aiding large-scale urban developments in these countries.
