Billions of people still lack access to electricity, clean cooking and other forms of modern, clean energy. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) have an ambitious objective to close these energy gaps so that sustainable energy access for all can be achieved by 2030. Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) is all about catalyzing faster, bolder action to realize SDG 7 – the goal on universal energy access – and support the Paris Climate Agreement.


SEforALL is a nonprofit organization, formed by the UN in 2011, working with governments, the private sector and civil society groups to accelerate faster, broader actions to ensure sustainable energy access for marginalized populations around the world.


Using cutting-edge research and our unique convening ability, we bring diverse leaders together to mobilize new strategies and more financing that will generate faster, bigger impacts on energy access, renewable energy and energy efficiency. We’re also spearheading initiatives such as the “People-Centered Accelerator” and “Cooling for All.”

Going further, faster – together.

There is a sustainable energy movement underway - one that is helping to secure a cleaner, just and prosperous world for all.
