Join the fight against extreme poverty

Have you ever wondered what energy poverty actually is? Well, not only do we have the answer to that, but we also have a four-minute glimpse from the Sustainable Energy for All Initiative into the everyday lives of people around the world who live their lives without reliable, everyday electricity.

Lack of electricity can mean no light at school, in a hospital, or at home. It can mean diseases and death, mostly affecting women and children, caused by household smoke from cooking. Imagine the number of lives lost because of lack of energy. This is energy poverty.
