For decades, countries around the world have made all efforts to achieve the access to electricity. This study focus on why the varied success of rural electrification is caused, what the effects of different measures are, and how the policy, technology and finance factors promote the rural electrification programme. First of all, to understand how the successful implementation of rural electrification will affect a country, a comprehensive analysis on human development, economy, and ecology and environment is conducted. Further, technical approaches used to improve access to electricity are discussed. Besides, the rural electrification practice of some typical countries is studied to discover the common point of successful implementation of rural electrification programme. It is found that four aspects, including institutional, laws and regulation, funding and market level, should be integrated to promote the rural electrification development. The choice of technical approaches can be diversified, but there must be sufficient and stable policies and funds to cooperate with the implementation of technical approaches.
