Energy Access

The Challenge

The SEforALL Global Tracking Framework (GTF) 2017 indicates that approximately 1.06 billion people are living without electricity -- only a slight improvement since 2012. Another 3 billion rely on wood or other biomass energy for cooking and heating, resulting in 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 (watch).
