Going further, faster - together
We work with leaders in government, the private sector and civil society to drive further, faster action toward achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7), which calls for universal access to sustainable energy by 2030. Our work also supports progress against the decarbonization targets laid out in the Paris Agreement.
Drawing on data and evidence, we identify a critical path to success in achieving SDG7 and Paris Agreement targets. Certain areas of this energy transition demand more urgent, focused action. Our work addresses the need to have all energy stakeholders aligned on and committed to these areas so that real progress can be made.
As a global platform, Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) empowers leaders to broker partnerships and unlock finance to achieve universal access to sustainable energy. We marshal the evidence, benchmark progress, connect stakeholders, amplify voices and tell stories of success.
Almost 1 billion people in the world today have no access to electricity, and roughly 3 times that number use dirty cooking fuels. SDG7 sets out to change these numbers. It calls for “affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all" by 2030.
