Energy Access

The Challenge

The SEforALL Global Tracking Framework (GTF) 2017 indicates that 1.06 billion people living without electricity - only a slight improvement since 2012. Another 3 billion rely on wood or other biomass for cooking and heating, resulting air pollution that causes about 4.3 million deaths each year. Despite concerted efforts to scale up energy access, we are not winning the race.  Acceleration is crucial.
