Affordable and clean energy

Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all

If you’ve ever experienced a power cut, you’ll know how challenging even the most simple tasks seem.

1.3 billion people live without any access to electricity at all. That means children struggle to find light to do homework, families cook food over smoky open fires, hospitals can’t power life-saving equipment or refrigerate medicines, and businesses can’t operate at full capacity.

Sustainable and reliable access to energy enables people to work their way out of poverty, and not just by powering basic services. It also allows people to connect to mobile networks and the internet, which unlocks many more learning and business opportunities.
