Sustainable Energy for All Workplan - 2020

Strategy document

The Sustainable Energy for All Workplan 2020 gives an outline of our short-term and long-term goals along with our workstreams, foundation, operations, and processes by which we plan to accomplish those set goals, offering our stakeholders a better understanding of the scope of our work towards achieving SDG7.

SEforALL focuses on High Impact Countries (as identified through the SEforALL analysis and Heat Maps in the categories of electrification, cooking, and energy efficiency as well as cooling in the Chilling Prospects report). We seek to impact as follows:

  • Improving policy and regulatory environments for each of the three pillars of sustainable energy (as indicated by rising RISE (Regulatory Indicators for Sustainable Energy) score)
  • Rising investment flows into energy access, clean cooking, energy efficiency, and sustainable cooling solutions (as indicated in the Energizing Finance series and other data)
  • A closing energy access gap, defined by a growing population receiving tier 3 energy services (as defined and indicated by the ESMAP Multi-Tier Framework)
